Medical Herbalists study to obtain a specialist degree which incorporates much of orthodox medical trainingā€covering such disciplines as anatomy, physiology, immunology, medical microbiology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition and clinical diagnosis, with the addition of botany and phytochemistry [plant chemistry] . Medical Herbalists are qualified to diagnose illness, interpret blood and urine test results and carry out routine physical examinations.
