Not surprisingly, many students from Maine colleges and universities double as outdoor adventurers as well. A few years at one of the state's many prestigious programs will transform you into a highly skilled backpacker in addition to whatever other disciplines you are pursuing.

What Do Holistic/Alternative Medicine Degree Courses Cover?
Modern medicine's approach to healing is generally focused on curing or treating a disease or complaint in isolation. Holistic medicine takes into account the patient as a whole and ministers to emotional, mental, social, and spiritual needs as well as the specific condition.

Your holistic/medicine degree courses may cover sociology, nutrition, psychology, anatomy, and diagnosis; you could also receive training in specific treatment disciplines such as herbalism, acupuncture, homeopathy, reiki, massage, or hypnosis.

What Are Career Opportunities Like For People With Holistic/Alternative Medicine Training?
There is a growing groundswell of public opinion that non-pharmaceutical and non-invasive treatments should be tried before conventional drugs or surgery. Some holistic/alternative medicine techniques are rapidly becoming accepted by conventional medical doctors as having a significant therapeutic value.

Many younger medical doctors like to offer their patients an alternative and you may find work on a part time basis in a Physician's clinic. Some hospitals, elderly care homes, or drug abuse clinics may even be interested in using your holistic/alternative medicine education especially for patients with intractable pain or social problems. Some cases are beyond conventional medicine and this is where you might use your education in improving quality of life. You may need to register or be licensed to practice on the general public in your State; so check with your school for State requirements.
