Our student clinic is staffed by our clinical herbal interns who are in the third year of our comprehensive training program and have already completed 900 hours of the curriculum, including 60 hours of clinical observation and case review. Your session at the clinic will consist of a meeting with two interns who are supervised by a member of our professional staff. Appointments last two hours, including a 15-30 minute period during which students consult with the supervisor regarding your case.
We’re excited to provide this service to our community. Your participation allows us to provide quality clinical experience for our students, for which we are very grateful.
Student Clinics are staffed on Mondays in Montpelier (at VCIH) and Burlington (at City Market Coop) and on Tuesdays in Montpelier. Consultations are by appointment only; please call VCIH to be connected to a student practitioner.
Fees and Payment
Like the Professional Clinic, the Student Clinics also operate on a sliding scale fee structure, ranging from $0–$10 for consultations. Herbs are also available on a sliding scale, as outlined in the Professional Clinic payment section. Your payments, no matter the size, are essential to making our services available to all who need them and are always appreciated.
“I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful herbal clinic. The herbalists I met with were incredibly professional and quite astute as well. I feel nourished in a whole new way. The tinctures have been fabulous and not only do I feel the medicine of the herbs within, I feel the equally important good medicine of the people who made the tincture, just for me.” – SH, Goddard College residency student clinic
