Consciousness-Based health training

New students are not being accepted into the BS in Pre-Integrative Medicine and are encouraged to consider the BA in Ayurveda Wellness and Integrative Health

Alternative medicine meets modern science

MIU teaches Maharishi AyurVeda℠, a comprehensive, prevention-oriented system of natural health that addresses the body, mind and environment of the individual to help them become holistically healthy.

Our programs integrate Maharishi AyurVeda techniques with modern medicine to take an integrated and balanced approach to wellness.

Study wellness from within

You’ll create wellness from within through daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. This evidence-based technique reduces stress, improves health, and helps the brain to function optimally–enabling you to learn without the strain typical of pre-med programs.

In addition, our dining hall provides organic, vegetarian meals, helping you to stay healthy and live what you’re learning.

Immerse yourself in your studies

At MIU you’ll be fully immersed in one full-time course per month, giving you time to dive deeply into each topic, from traditional subjects like biology and anatomy to practical experience in ayurvedic wellness consultations. With this “block system” schedule, you’ll avoid the burnout that comes with studying 4-5 subjects at once—including exam period.

Our small class sizes mean that there’s time for class discussions, hands-on projects, and one-on-one attention from our experienced faculty, who will guide your growth as a health professional with personalized feedback.

You’ll graduate with a deep understanding of both modern healthcare and ayurvedic wellness, prepared for graduate studies and other career ventures in the field of integrative medicine, and ready to help patients become healthier than ever.
