ITM Worldhas inspired a unique educational vision in the heart of North America's most multi-cultural city. We are committed to the integration of the world's traditional medicines and wisdom traditions with conventional and modern healthcare approaches.
Our professional educational programs span the medical arts and sciences, spirituality, ecology, end of life care, mediation and social justice, and are open to all.
We endeavour to offer the highest level of training possible in traditional and integrative medicine and interdisciplinary studies. This vision is fuelled by our long-term initiatives; to establish community-based health care options both within North America as well as abroad, which integrate traditional medical practices with conventional approaches to healthcare.
We envision societies in which Integrative Medicine is accessible and available to all.
