The Autumn School “Mediterranean Phytotherapy” is coming from September 23rd to November 19th 2023 for five week ends, within the framework of a bilateral cultural agreement Salerno UNESCO Chair-Prodecopharma srl.
The Autumn School is a high education and advanced training course based on multi-discipline workshops, conferences and seminars given by research lecturers (Chair Holder and co-founders of the Salerno UNESCO Chair) and real-world lecturers from hospitals and industry. The practical focus will ensure you will acquire a deep knowledge of the Mediterranean history and Traditions and the ability to select, design and clinically use Mediterranean medicinal plants and health products.
The journey, unique of its kind, offers an in-depth educational experience that unfolds over more than eight centuries, retracing the history and culture of Mediterranean medical and herbal tradition – especially Italian – from the medieval Salerno medical school to the present day, with a range of top-notch bibliographic, historical, botanical, and scientific references guaranteed by the collaboration of illustrious Italian and international university professors.
Just as Mediterranean herbal medicine originates from plants, our journey will also begin in the greenery of the “Giardino della Minerva” in Salerno, the Hortus sanitatis and “home” of the Salerno Medical School, as well as one of the oldest botanical gardens in the entire western world. The journey continues with lessons on sources, books, texts, and plants – on Mediterranean ethnobotany, organotropic functional herbal medicine, and essential oils. The most innovative herbal and phyto-cosmetic formulations and applications in clinical herbal medicine today will be presented.
The journey concludes at the headquarters of Prodeco Pharma for an experiential workshop on the organization of a modern manufacturing company.”
In the case of foreign participants, simultaneous translation into english will be provided for the entire course.
