Northeast School of Botanical Medicine

The below handouts are divided into 3 sections. The first section is related to the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine and includes the application and syllabus. The next group is a wide variety of handouts, useful for incoming students and anyone interested in herbal medicine. The final section is dedicated to related links. Feel free to download any and all. Some of these handouts are occasionally revised. If you have already downloaded them, you may want to check to see if you have the most current copy. I hope you find this useful.
