Although your research internship will lead you to a greater understanding of ethnobotany, it is not an herbal apprenticeship. Please see our course list if you would like to study herbalism with us.
We accept applications from anyone; however priority will be given to interns who have previous experience and interest in one or more of the following areas of study:
Indigenous or Traditional Medicine, Ethnobotany, International Law, Medical Anthropology, Project Management or Publicity, Human Rights & Health Justice
