Mederi Academy

Since our inception in 2005, Mederi’s clinical training programs and lecture offerings have provided education to thousands of healthcare providers. Participants have included medical doctors, oncologists, naturopaths, licensed acupuncturists, chiropractors, and other health care providers.

What is Mederi Academy?

Mederi Academy is an online training program* that teaches healthcare practitioners how to incorporate the Mederi Care® model (also known as Eclectic Triphasic Medical System or ETMS) into their practice. The goal of the program is to provide clinicians with the skills they need to enhance patient vitality and significantly improve the quality of life and longevity for people facing cancer and other serious health challenges.

* Mederi Academy will work with state, regional, and national associations to get the program CME approved for various heath care practitioners.

Who is Mederi Academy for?

Mederi Academy is open to credentialed, certified, or licensed healthcare practitioners who are committed to providing comprehensive care in the field of integrative and holistic medicine. If you are looking for curriculum that addresses the deep gaps in the current healthcare model and want advanced training in a holistic, unitive form of medicine and healing, this program is for you.

What does Mederi Academy offer?

We utilize the most current online learning methods to bring you a comprehensive, multi-modal educational experience. Our curriculum offers a framework for the integration of conventional science, genetics, and immunology with botanical and nutritional medicine. Our course content ranges from how to utilize the six toolboxes of Mederi Care® to improve patient outcomes, to an in-depth exploration of the Materia Medica as it relates to botanical and nutritional medicine, holistic and unitive cancer care.  

You'll begin by learning fundamental concepts of medicine as viewed through the lens of Mederi Care®. Course work that follows covers clinical applications of Mederi Care®/ETMS for health optimization and in the treatment of many health conditions. You’ll then learn how to assimilate all of this knowledge into your practice to successfully develop and administer treatment protocols. You’ll also learn how to write and present cases to other Mederi Care® practitioners.  

The knowledge and skills you gain in Mederi Academy will help you be better advocates for your patients/clients. This will enable you to be a unifying hub of information, bringing the best of various forms of medicine together, so that you can guide your patients/clients through their health and medical journey in a truly integrative way.
