This degree will give systematic and advanced practical training in the many natural, time-tested modalities of Maharishi Ayurveda. The first course provides an overview of the entire curriculum. The tenth provides an opportunity for clinical practice and integration. The eight central courses each focus on one of the eight major organ systems of the body. Students will gain an understanding of the main disorders of that system from both modern medicine and Ayurveda perspectives. Specifically, students will learn:

The goal of the School of Integrative Medicine is to fulfill the current global need to provide a holistic and scientific system of health care for prevention and cure, for both individual and collective health.
At this Medical School all the main topics of modern medicine and Maharishi Ayurveda are studied in light of their basis in Total Knowledge—the Veda—the inner intelligence of human physiology; and in light of the student’s experience of developing higher states of consciousness.
Maharishi Ayurveda is the ancient and timeless Vedic approach to medicine, which was brought to light in this scientific age for its authentic value of theory and practice by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in conjunction with the world’s foremost experts in Ayurvedic Medicine and physicians and scientists in modern medicine.
