Case Studies: Real Life Examination
A clinical studies course is required for the Health Practitioner program, and the Post Graduate Programs in Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Oriental Medicine, and the Holistic Nutritionist program. It features a few well documented clinical case studies giving the student the opportunity to prepare for consultation work. The student must perform three clinical study cases, according to the model provided, and then write a report.
Post Graduate Program: Thesis Paper and Internship
For Post Graduate programs in Naturopathy, Homeopathy or Oriental Medicine, students must write a thesis paper. Students must also complete an internship, consisting of 36 hours at a AMCC approved practitioner’s office. Once this is completed, students submit a summary report.
Passing grade to obtain a diploma is set at 70%. It is the cumulative average of all assignments plus the final assignment.
Continuous assessments are worth 60% of the final grade.
Case studies are worth 40% of the final grade.
Note: If you choose to study under the “Personal” status, you do not need to take exams.
If you fail:
You must get a grade of 70% to pass a course. As in many other institutions, if you fail, you have a second chance. After two failures, if your grade is high enough (70% or more), you will have to retake the entire course and resubmit another exam. If your average is below 70%, your tutor will contact you about a possible change in program or orientation.
