Contents of the Curriculum:
Health promotion is seen as a supplement to the so-called repair medicine. In many cases complementary methods are applied today to this end. The course for Integrated Health Sciences (Integrated Health Promotion) is designed to offer interdisciplinary, biological, psychological, sociological and ecological cross-linking as a bridge between conventional and complementary health work.
Every course participant brings training in an area complementary to medicine or a complementary medicine area received from an external specialised educational facility of his/her choice.
