On 24 October 2018 Catholic Health World reported: Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine is believed to be the first major medical school in the country to offer Transcendental Meditation, or TM, as an elective course. Since 2014, the class has been offered to help medical students manage stress. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.
Dr. Gregory Gruener, vice dean for education and a neurology professor at Stritch, counts the TM training as a success. ''We don't push it — it's one technique — but a significant chunk of the students, about a third of each class, sign up for it, and almost 300 have enrolled since it started.''
Gruener said he practices TM, and he openly credits it with reducing his own stress. ''You have to embrace wellness and you have to find the time to take control of your own life,'' he said. ''Once you begin TM, that gets easier.''
