Mederi Academy

Mederi Academy

"Healthcare is undergoing transformation at an unparalleled pace. Technology is disrupting delivery methods, and empowered patients are demanding an experience that is both effective and humane. The call is clear to blend science with nature, evidence with humanity, and body with spirit. The most profound impact we can have on healthcare is to train the next generation of providers in Mederi Medicine through the Mederi Academy, to impart the tools that embody the unitive future of medicine and healing."
~ Dr. Susan Abookire, Mederi Center Director of Medical Education and Faculty Development

Since our inception in 2005, Mederi’s clinical training programs and lecture offerings have educated thousands of healthcare providers in our unique and highly efficacious Mederi Care approach (also known as the Eclectic Triphasic Medical System™ or ETMS). Participants have included medical doctors, oncologists, naturopaths, acupuncturists and other health care providers.

What is Mederi Academy?

Mederi Academy is a 2-year, accredited online learning program that trains healthcare practitioners around the world in Mederi Medicine, giving them the skills they need to significantly improve quality of life and longevity for people facing cancer and other serious health challenges.

Who is Mederi Academy for?

Mederi Academy is open to licensed clinical practitioners who are committed to providing comprehensive care in the field of integrative medicine, specifically with an interest in our unitive, Mederi Care model. The Academy addresses the deep gaps in current healthcare by training providers in our wholistic, unitive form of medicine and healing, thus providing a much-needed foundation for the integration of conventional science, genetics, and immunology with the life-enhancing properties of botanical medicine.  

What does Mederi Academy offer?

The skills-based, 2-year online learning curriculum is delivered by Mederi Care/ETMS trained faculty and includes several optional in-person training modules in Ashland. Participants develop deep knowledge of Mederi Care and the skills to effectively practice it. 

The first year is a pre-clinical curriculum with an objectives-based structure that includes Mederi Care/ETMS methodology, botanical medicine, genetics, immunology, well-being, prevention, and chronic conditions. The second year focuses on clinical skills training.

Training in Mederi Care/ETMS emphasizes advanced clinical applications of botanical, nutritional, and biological medicine principles within a multifaceted framework in order to successfully execute health-building interventions and protocols that enhance patient vitality and lifespan.
