Remote Access Training

We are happy to announce that the ICAHT hijama practitioner-training program is now available via remote access through our online learning platform

The ICAHT Hijama certification program, which was previously delivered in live classes over the duration of 9 months and required physical attendance, can now be accessed remotely.

This is done via high quality HD video tutorials that were recorded live while they were being delivered in the ICAHT centre lecture hall to our last class of physical attendance students. The fly on the wall style lectures are accessible with all the supplementary content and online support so that students can access the materials in their own time allowing a flexible learning experience that can fit around individual circumstances and commitment. This new structure was developed due to the high cost of travel and accommodation incurred by both national and international students who wished to study with our organisation.

Both stages 1 & 2 of the ICAHT hijama diploma, which contain all the theoretical study required for the program can be accessed online. These stages contain all the modules required for full ICAHT registration with exception of the clinical internship, which forms the majority of the stage 3 study.

Stage 1 can be enrolled HERE at any time.

Only after completion of stage 1 do students get the option to enrol on stage 2 as the content is progressive and requires the foundations set in the previous stage.

On completion of all the theoretical study you can opt to take part in a clinical internship, which forms the structure for the stage 3 program. Those who complete this and all the assessment criteria can gain full practitioner status and gain registration to the ICAHT professionals association. Those students who do not complete stage 3 can join the register but will remain listed as only completing the theory modules and hence retain student status.

Course Modules:

While this module is designed to introduce learners to the science of clinical interaction it is also a good refresher for those well versed in the intricacies of clinical practice. From covering essential aspects of patient communication, history taking, documentation and vital assessments to understanding the underpinning sciences of human physiology and the detailed study of tissue damage, tissue repair and the inflammatory processes. All this is delivered from the redefined perspective of holistic medicine trying to understand what the body is doing as a whole as opposed to the reductionist or allopathic medical standpoint. This module will be an eye opener for health professionals and lay people alike.

Mode of Delivery:

This module will be delivered by detailed online video lectures with interactive tutor access platforms in order to address any learner question and discuss any relevant topics. Optional patient interaction, case history taking and vital signs workshops will take place through the year for those interested in group participation.

Module Assessment:

Clinical skills & practical applications of this module’s content will be assessed as part of the continual assessment criteria in the clinical practice module. Physical assessments will be included in OSEC exams and patient practitioner interactions may be assessed as part of the final written exams.

This module provides a global outlook of the practice of hijama and its applications to the health care systems of today. By examining the current systems of care and contrasting those of the past we evaluate the strategic advantages and disadvantages of these systems. By identifying multiple gaps and flaws in these systems we are better able to appreciate how hijama and its alternate model of care can be a viable options to meet the needs of our local communities and the wider world as a whole.

This module introduces learners to the anatomical structures of the torso and extremities and serves as an important underpinning knowledge base for any health care practitioner. The scope of the module includes studying the anatomy of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and organs, as well as other tissues related to the musculoskeletal system such as fascia, cartilage, bursae and retinacula. There is a big emphasis on the clinical significance of the tissues and practical sessions will introduce learners to postural assessment, joint evaluation, biomechanical analysis as well as common pathologies.

Overall the module provides the learner with a very detailed applied practical understanding of anatomy and musculoskeletal biomechanics, which is important to ensure technical competence and safety as a practitioner.

Mode of delivery:

The module will be delivered through a series of online video lectures that will initially guide the learner through the human body, one area at a time. The lectures will each instruct students on how to name and find their way around the structures in practice sessions designed to be conducted in the comfort their own homes. These sessions will then be followed up by live practical workshops where students will put their knowledge in to practice by assessing, in groups, the studied structures in relation to each other taking on a holistic viewpoint by studying their postural integration, joint and tissue assessments as well as local biomechanics, functional assessment and specialised tests.

Module Assessments:

This Module is assessed by a final written exam, monthly assignments and a practical OSCE station exam.

This is an in depth and comprehensive study module of the physiological interaction of hijama therapy on human tissues. It evaluates not only the scientific literature on the topic but also all the significant hypothesis proposed in the wider literate providing students with a holistic view on the topic allowing them to then make up their own minds on how they believe hijama works. With this insight the clinical experiences gained by students in our teaching clinics become much more invigorating as minds begin to flow with ideas and concepts that try to explain the often miraculous results that patients experience.

Optional student interaction workshops will be available on selected dates throughout the year for those interested in group participation.

Module Assessments:

 

Many concepts of this module will be assessed by a final written exam.

This module is a comprehensive study of the practical application of hijama therapy in its wet and dry forms. With a detailed insight into practice variations and equipment selection, the module gives a clear perspective of the properties of each technique including its advantages and disadvantages. The module covers multiple hands on techniques and practices that have been developed in order to provide best results for the patient while providing maximum ease and safety for the practitioner. Essential aspects of patient care, infection control, personal protection and clinical hygiene are covered with many clinical gems to take away and apply.

Mode of delivery:

The module will be delivered through a series of online video lectures that will initially guide the learner through the various techniques to practice at home and will then be followed up by live practical classes where students will put their knowledge in to practice in group sessions on each other under the guidance of their respective tutors.

Module Assessments:

Clinical skills & practical applications of this module’s content will be assessed as part of the continual assessment criteria in the clinical practice module. Physical assessments will be included in OSEC exams and additional aspects may be assessed as part of the final written exams.

This module explores some selected but extremely essential areas of medical science that must be fully understood in order to safely practice hijama therapy. By recognising the ways in which hijama can alter physiological processes the student discovers that there are some types of patient cases in which special precautions needs to be taken. In these situations a specific system of considerations gets put in to practice and the student is empowered with the knowledge of deciding when it is sae to proceed and when it is not. Additional aspects of health screening are covered highlighting red flag signals and emergency event management to be sure that the practitioner is always in control of the situation ensuring patient safety at all times.

After completing this course I can confidently say that I made the best decision in my life. Not only did it far exceed my expectations in its level of high quality content and professionalism but it also offered me the opportunity to work in a live clinic treating patients with real problems. This was the icing on the cake and helped me put all I learned into practice. This course is in my view of a university standard and can not be compared to the alternative options out there. There is simply no comparison between one day workshops with online classes and a fully integrated and academically structured learning program taught by qualified professionals.
