Additional Requirement: Completion of Major Senior Project

The senior project for the bachelor’s in Physiology and Health major consists of a reflection paper and a portfolio of case studies. This reflection paper (1000-1200 words) is integral to the case studies. Students reflect on what they have learned from their case studies and demonstrate their understanding of the core principles of Maharishi AyurVeda and how these principles relate to human physiology and optimal state of health.

The portfolio of case studies (based on at least 50 clinical encounters including observation, student/client encounter with direct supervision, and one-on-one cases) is the means to demonstrate competence in evaluating the level of balance, causative factors, and ayurvedic pathology. Appropriate measures are recommended to restore balance through stress reduction, lifestyle, diet, spices, herbal supplements, meditation, yoga, and other modalities of Maharishi AyurVeda.

Pre-Integrative Medicine track students are required to complete the major senior project during one course of PH 431 Maharishi AyurVeda Wellness Consultant Practicum.
