Emphasis on Social Justice

Our programs emphasize our responsibility to serve - individuals and communities, and to use our voices and actions to advocate and empower for a more just world.

It is our belief that medicine must benefit not the human species alone, but all beings, and nature itself. Medicine must include a systemic approach to health.

We envision societies in which Integrative & Sustainable Medicine is accessible and available to all.

Our professional educational programs span the medical arts and sciences, spirituality, eco-health, sustainability, end of life care, and social justice, and are open to all. We foster a community of learning that inspires the growth and expansion of not only the individual, but those of the community. We are dedicated to cultivating a community of learning that encourages the promotion of supportive, open and transparent communication amongst our students, faculty, administration and alumni. Since our inception, we have developed programs that motivate our community to apply their intellect, resources and learning for the betterment of the world.

Visionaries & Advisors

We are honoured to have the guidance, support and inspiration of a number of incredible human beings and visionaries - teachers, practitioners and change-makers who have spent their lives dedicated to the pursuit of inspiring change, peace, and health across communities and the world.
