You do not necessarily need experience in herbal medicine to participate in this workshop and clinical. We expect students to have a sincere desire to be in service to not only Envision but to their community at large. Students must be aware that we will be working along with conventional medics, professional EMTs, Doctors, Nurses and other trained first aid and harm prevention practitioners. You must be open to all modalities based on the need of the patient, not on your own projected ideal of what healing is. Acute care also known as First Aid is about rapid and effective response, working within our own skill level and scope of experience to provide the safest and most thorough care possible.
While we will make sure each student gets a chance to work with patients, we also reserve the right based on our experience and knowledge to vet the students appropriately within their skill, knowledge and comfort levels.
As participants in this clinic, you will gain experience, confidence and perspective into the vast realm of herbal medicine. We need herbalists on the ground practicing, and this happens with your participation!
