The principles underlying the training policy advocated by Roscore Clinic is to produce physicians of natural medicine with a knowledge of general medicine similar to a junior hospital doctor, coupled with an indepth knowledge of natural medicine sciences, and with the ability to integrate both safely, to deliver a comprehensive and viable alternative primary healthcare system for Ireland. The apprenticeship model, under the guidance of a qualified medical herbalist or an Ayurvedic physician, will be the basis of study.
