The new pre-medical undergraduate programme at Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA will prepare students for traditional US medical school, and for programmes at the Maharishi College of Perfect Health.
The Maharishi College of Perfect Health is M.U.M.'s medical school, now under development—which will fulfil the need of the time by offering complete medical training featuring the knowledge of Maharishi Integrative Medicine.
Adjunct clinical faculty member Dr Nancy Lonsdorf recently discussed the new four-year undergraduate pre-med programme (offering a B.A. in Physiology and Health), which is open to students around the world who have completed their secondary school education.
Graduates of this programme will also be able to continue their education at Maharishi University of Management's integrative medical school, which is now under development, she said.
The goal is to have the Maharishi College of Perfect Health established in the next three to four years, Dr Lonsdorf said. This pioneering medical school will train students in modern medicine and Maharishi Ayur-Veda—and also other natural and traditional health care systems that effectively promote good health and relieve suffering.
Maharishi Integrative Medicine will be fulfilling for doctors and patients alike. In the US, nearly half the population uses some form of complementary or alternative medicine. People are more than ready for this new approach to health, she said.
'This is what everyone wants and needs when they become ill. They need compassionate doctors with highly developed consciousness, great compassion, hearts that are open, intuition that is very keen, and very bright minds knowing all the latest from not only modern medicine, but everything natural that works—and the predisposition to use what is natural first, to use what will have the least side effects as a first option,' Dr Lonsdorf said.
The Maharishi College of Perfect Health and the Maharishi Health Centres will utilize everything that is natural and life-supporting, and will create a whole new level of health that hasn't previously been available, Dr Lonsdorf said.
