The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this news: After seeking for years to offer a medical degree, Maharishi University of Management in the USA will begin collaborating in the coming academic year with a modern medicine school to provide a medical degree in integrative medicine.

Students in the program will receive dual degrees: 1) an MD in conventional medical practice from St. Martinus University Faculty of Medicine in Curacao and 2) an MS in Maharishi AyurVeda and Integrative Medicine from MUM. The four-year curriculum will integrate the two approaches to medicine, with one class period per day on natural and traditional medicine.

As the integrative medicine students learn facets of conventional medicine, such as the organ system, each day they'll spend one class learning how that correlates with Maharishi AyurVeda.

'The students will receive a high level of training in science and in evidence-based approaches to both types of medicine,' said Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, Dean of MUM's Maharishi College of Perfect Health. 'They will be well qualified to fill the increasing number of job openings in integrative medicine clinics and centers in the U.S. . . .

'St. Martinus has a strong track record of training doctors who subsequently practice in the U.S. and Canada,' Dr. Schneider said. 'Approximately 97 percent of their graduates obtain residencies in North America, which is a common measure of success for a medical school. A residency is the last step before licensure.'
