Where is the best place to study the field of Medicinal Botany?

I'm looking to major in medicinal botany along with psychology. If there is anyone who could lend even the slightest information, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, to anyone currently in the field, I would be very grateful if I could ask you a few questions, thanks again.

    A popular book on the topic is:

    Lewis, Walter H. and Memory R. F. Elvin-

    Lewis (2003) Medical Botany: Plants Affecting Human Health.

    2nd ed. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ.

    There is an online program offered by the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine: http://www.swsbm.com/homepage/

    Most colleges/universities that have a Botany department will offer a medical botany course or, more commonly called, ethnobotany. An example of what is covered in one of these courses can be found here: http://www.ars-grin.gov/duke/syllabus/

    The University of Hawaii is the only place in the US that offers a degree in ethnobotany -- their program specializes in special medical training programs in coordination with the School of Allopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing and the School of Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, and Herbalism.

    You can find out more at their website:
