Course overview

While providing a comprehensive grounding and foundation knowledge across natural medicine modalities, the course requires around half of the contact hours required of a clinical degree program and it is completely delivered online.

The Bachelor of Complementary Medicine provides students with a broad perspective on the scope of this dynamic field, in the overall context of public health, ethics, research, health promotion and health behaviour. The course is designed for students who are interested in the Complementary Medicine field as a whole and are interested in careers other than Clinical Practitioner.

Public interest in Complementary Medicine is strong, driving ever-increasing investment in the field, and pushing for its integration into the rapidly evolving healthcare landscape that will be increasingly dominated by multidisciplinary and integrative teams. This course will prepare students for employment in a variety of fields including public health, public administration, health administration and social work.


What you'll learn

Students will learn a broad range of theoretical topics including biological sciences, social sciences, naturopathy, nutrition, acupuncture, musculoskeletal therapies, homeopathy and public health and health promotion. Complementary Medicine also has an extensive suite of elective subjects to allow students to specialise in areas of interest.
