A unique specialization program that will allow you to acquire advanced training in this field"

A program developed to offer nursing professionals the support of the most advanced knowledge in dermatology and other applications of interest”

At present there is a scientific basis that supports the efficacy of many phytotherapeutic products for certain conditions. Phytotherapy should be used in therapeutics to deal with the situations it has proven to be useful and safe.

For phytotherapeutics to be effective, the proper preparations must be made, both in terms of indications and form of administration.

This program offers a current vision of Phytotherapy and its application in the health field, including the latest contributions and advances. The contents are guaranteed by the teaching staff on the Postgraduate Diploma, since they have all worked in the field of Phytotherapy, or in a related one, in some way, shape or form. Thus, students will learn based on our professors’ experience and on evidence-based medicine, resulting in an effective and precise specialization for students. Given, on the one hand, that different university programs generally lack a deep and continuous updated training program on Phytotherapy; and, on other other, that current health trends lean toward safe and effective natural remedies, students must be offered the possibility of expanding their knowledge and therapeutic skills with greater training in the use of medical plants, both from a professional and academic perspective so as to prepare themselves for the future in the field.
