Diploma for Integrative Medicine

The Diploma for Integrative Medicine will lead students into a sound knowledge of Integrative Medicine, and help them to develop a critical and enquiring approach to a variety of therapeutic interventions and their use in a range of common conditions.

It will also help the Portland Centre to develop and inspire a network of practitioners with a knowledge of practice-based research and its role in evidence-informed Integrative Medicine. We also hope to develop healthcare professionals’ self-confidence and skills in holistic assessment to help patients towards maintaining health, personal resilience, and self-empowerment.

Through their studies, the Portland Centre will assist healthcare professionals, through self-reflection and self-care, to build personal resilience and deal with the rigours of contemporary working environments. Healthcare professionals will also learn to manage and communicate a transition towards being an IM practitioner in clinical practice.

This will develop a community of practice that helps to redefine the concept of health as contextual, communal and connected to nature.
