Systems Health Courses

The Systems Health Course Curriculum

The Systems Health curriculum provides a unique educational program on the molecular systems science of traditional and eastern systems of medicine. The curriculum involves individual courses which can be taken alone or as a part of the Systems Health Certification Programs. The courses are intended to bridge the understanding of eastern and traditional systems of medicine from a common scientific foundation based on western systems theory and molecular systems biology.

These courses were tested over many semesters and years as a part of the MIT lecture series on Systems Biology and Traditional medicine, to a wide ranging audience of medical doctors, Ph.Ds, science and engineering students, yoga teachers, acupuncturists, naturopaths, massage therapists, chiropractors, holistic and health practitioners as well as ordinary people committed to health and well being. In short, these courses are truly unique as they cut across diversity of professional backgrounds, educational backgrounds and knowledge. These courses provide a fundamental way of exploring health and well being from a systems approach that can benefit any one.
