Discover a new paradigm for medical practice
Patients are increasingly demanding whole person, prevention-oriented healthcare without harmful side effects.
During your program, you’ll gain knowledge and skills to optimize your clinical effectiveness while minimizing adverse effects of conventional medicine. You’ll learn to empower your patients and increase satisfaction through whole-person care utilizing best practices of modern Integrative Medicine and Integrative Ayurveda.
Prevent clinician burnout, practice self-care
Clinician burnout and exhaustion is a grim reality, with more than half of physicians and healthcare providers reporting burnout.
This one-of-a-kind training for healthcare professionals engages you in an ongoing program of clinician-oriented self-care using evidence-based practices of mind-body medicine, lifestyle medicine, Integrative Ayurveda, and the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Practice the science and art of personalized integrative medicine
You’ll learn Maharishi AyurVeda pulse assessment and mind-body types.
This will help you to detect imbalances in mind and body before clinical symptoms manifest, and to restore balance for prevention.
Study at home with a flexible schedule
Our two-year, part-time online MS requires 10-12 hours per week of study on your own time and schedule.
You’ll meet biweekly with your medical instructors for live, online clinical sessions. Once per year, you’ll have the opportunity to come for a week of residential clinical study and experience on the MIU campus.
