Online Alternative Education Programs

Are you looking to practice a different method of healing? Consider completing a training degree or certificate program in alternative medicine. Practitioners of alternative medicine include massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, homeopaths, and hypnotherapists. As the health care industry in general has seen increases, so too has the need for trained alternative medicine practitioners.

Typical coursework in alternative medicine depends greatly on the concentration chosen. Subjects may include herbal medicine, alternative medical systems, homeopathy, and holistic nutrition. Bachelor's degree graduates may enter the work field, except in the case of chiropractors and other medical professionals that require more education and licensure.

If you're considering an education but unwilling to sacrifice your current career, distance learning may offer the compromise you need. The Sloan Consortium reports that about 3.5 million students chose to take at least one online course in the fall 2006 semester, picking the convenience of online training over the traditional classroom.
