Course description:
The hijama diploma involves a careful examination of the hijama procedure, undertaking an in depth study of its physiological mechanisms and interactions with human tissues and applying this understanding to live clinical cases and patient scenarios.  The emphasis of the course is to produce practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of hijama therapy while taking into consideration, religious, cultural, psychological and social implications of its practice. The course is scientifically based, founded on in depth academic research of the topics and shares an abundant wealth of practical & clinical experience that is to be embraced by its participants.

The diploma  starts with an intensive face to face lecture based course followed by implementation of the theoretical study in a clinical lab based setting where 50 hours will be spent with a Qualified Doctor practicing hijama on real patients seeking care. This flexitime arrangement will be coupled with home work assignments, case studies and a final exam that will be sat at the end of the 6 month duration. For non-medical students who have not studied clinical anatomy in the past, the clinical anatomy module will be applicable which will include monthly workshops that will take place where each student will learn in depth the detailed anatomy of the human body.
