Significantly enhance your ability to effectively treat a wide range of diseases through our quality lectures and supported study with the leading practitioner-researchers in the UK

The White Crane Academy is providing a ground-breaking and highly practical course in Chinese herbal medicine. Normally based at the International College of Oriental Medicine (ICOM), East Grinstead, we have been running our regular monthly teaching sessions remotely during the Covid-19 restrictions.

Fully accredited by EHTPA

The White Crane Academy diploma course in Chinese herbal medicine is accredited by the European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA). Notable benefits of qualifying from an accredited course include wider recognition of your qualification and eligibility for membership of the RCHM.

Clinical practice

Our 3 year course covers herbs, formulae and supervised clinical practice – in his article How long does it take to grow a herbalist?, Andrew Flower discusses the course and explains how it differs from some of the shorter courses out there.

Join us

Our next herb course starts in September 2022. Note that if you are interested but do not have a background in Traditional Chinese Medicine, we also run a TCM foundation course.
