Maharishi University of Vedic Medicine has just launched its new online degree programmes, with parts of the courses held in residence. One can enrol in online courses at any time.

Speaking on 18 June, Dr Philippe Mercanton, Administrative Director of Maharishi University of Vedic Medicine in Geneva, gave an overview of the different levels of study available and how to enrol.

There are five levels of training, Dr Mercanton explained:

* Bachelor of Science in Maharishi Vedic Medicine graduates will be qualified to practice Maharishi Ayur-Veda in their own country; they can give Ayuredic consultations and prescribe specific treatments to restore balance and functionality of the body. They can also implement programmes for the collective health of the whole society.

* Master of Science in Maharishi Vedic Medicine: Students will specialize in one of five fields of modern medical specialities, in theory and clinical practice. They are qualified to operate an official Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centre offering treatments such as Panchakarma (rejuvenation therapy). They will gain proficiency in the ability to establish a disease-free society.

* The Certificate in Maharishi Vedic Medicine is not a university degree, but by fulfilling the requirements, graduates will be qualified to practise Maharishi Ayur-Veda in their own country as health practitioners, and give health advice. They can open their own practice and can prescribe preventive measures and treatment.

* The Advanced Course is for doctors and health consultants who have already received training in Maharishi Ayur-Veda. The programme includes updating their knowledge of Maharishi Vedic Medicine; discussion of clinical experiences with expert Vaidyas (Maharishi Ayur-Veda physicians from India); and advanced knowledge of Ayurvedic pulse reading and Maharishi Ayur-Veda products.

* The Self Health Care programme offers knowledge for one's own personal health development.

'All these programmes are structured in a very flexible system of modules, offering the ease of distance learning,' Dr Mercanton said. All the courses will be conducted in English, although translation for different language groups could be added to the online programme.

For those interested in joining these new courses, please visit for further information and to download the application form.

* Dr Mercanton spoke on the 18 June Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
