what others are saying about their IPMT experience...
"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… AM is a holistic medicine that begins with its foundation in conventional medicine but adds new dimensions that allows a practitioner to penetrate into the deeper layers of each unique, individual patient."
~Tiffany Baer, MD
"It was my second IPMT meeting and I always wondered after the first one if subsequent IPMTs would be just as cool... Almost immediately I felt a sense of deep satisfaction. Every meeting, discussion, 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".
I can’t believe that AM has not gone viral!"

"I have nothing but kudos and thank you’s to say about the
newbies track for physicians at the IPMT I recently attended in Chestnut Ridge.
The experience began with a beautiful setting of the Fellowship Community
and the Threefold Waldorf school and a gentle loving check-in to the
pre-conference sessions. It continued with great teaching from
knowledgeable, caring professors coming from the USA and Europe. Early each
morning, a Eurythmy movement expert gave demonstrations and participation to
all. The nurses demonstrated multiple procedures with hand-outs and how-to’s. We
learned the Steiner basics from his translated literature and discussed today’s
relevance. As a group, we studied a plant in detail; and remedies for the
respiratory tract problems. Evenings were filled with lectures from the
best of the best in worldwide Anthroposophic Medicine physicians. It is hard to believe that
we received so much for so relatively little and all was given to us so
freely. I was able to get to know dozens of other newbies and
network with many very experienced physicians of AM. Thank you again with great
gratitude for the introduction to a most complete medicine and way of
