Paving the way for complementary therapies in Scotland with exciting developments at Moray College UHI
Moray College UHI is now offering a suite of 19 integrative healthcare continuous professional development modules. The stand-alone modules, which recognise the value complementary and alternative medicine approaches bring to health and social care, offer students the opportunity to study the subjects most relevant to their careers and aspirations at a pace and time which suits their needs.
The modules make up the University of the Highlands and Islands BSc (Hons) Integrative Healthcare degree and are designed to offer students the opportunity to study the subjects most relevant to their careers and aspirations at a pace and time which suits their needs. Both the degree and the modules offer flexible study methods to suit students who may have other commitments and are also ideal for practitioners currently working in relevant fields. The modules can be studied individually and are ideal for anyone who can only commit to part time study. They also contain fresh modules perfect for new or returning learners.
Many of the modules are recognised by the Federation of Professional Therapists and the reflexology packages are recognised by the Association of Reflexologists.
The module packages range from SCQF Level 7 up to SCQF Level 10 and students can choose as many or a few as suits their current commitments, preferences, and experience. The modules are delivered through a blended learning approach which is a combination of face-to-face and online learning.
Rosemary McCormack, Head of Curriculum at Moray College UHI, said:
“The focus of the continuous professional development modular programme is on developing high standards in the professional therapeutic approaches to healthcare in context. The suite aims to enhance practice skills where they already exist and develop new skills where they do not which will develop complementary therapy practitioners who have the specialist knowledge base and skills to enable them to practice effectively, in a safe and accountable manner, and in a variety of health and social care settings.”
