Read what others are saying...
"My first IPMT in 2008 was a game-changer for my career path. The IPMT opened my eyes to an international medical movement that has been blossoming for almost a century. This medical movement views the human being, not just in a physical, biological sense, but includes in its view the human being as a potentially evolving spiritual being. Having this wider view of the possibilities of each human being improved how I felt about practicing medicine and was necessary for me to feel good about my relationship with patients. Who will benefit from the IPMT? Anyone who has a longing to go deep into the heart of medicine and a yearning to understand why a human being really becomes ill... Anthroposophic Medicine is a holistic medicine that begins with its foundation in conventional medicine, but adds new dimensions that allow a practitioner to penetrate into the deeper layers of each unique, individual patient." -Tiffany Baer, MD
"Every meeting, discussion and gathering I attended created an 'awe' that blew my mind. The lectures were extremely helpful and timely. It gave me a lot of support and hope for the work we do. There have been many suggestions, exercises and opportunities to learn and self-develop at the IPMT that I would not have found in any other 'scientific meetings'." -Vinay Parameswara, MD
