What our students are saying

You are amazing!!

"Miss it already!!! What an incredible course and community! Thank you so much for your hard work, dedication, leadership, and deeply impactful content…Both life and clinical practice changing, and provided light back into my clinical vision. You are amazing!! Highly recommend this course to all who may get the opportunity!" 

Jillian Rigert, DMD, MD

(oral medicine)

 Helped to inspire me to open my own integrative medicine practice!

"(Dr. Chiaramonte) is an engaging leader and teacher, always stimulating lively discussions and leading the group to think outside the box... the course helped to inspire me to open my own integrative medicine practice! (Dr. Chiaramonte) masterfully transfers her passion for medicine to her students."

Mollie Sourwine, MD

(family medicine)

The self-care aspect has been a very valuable addition to my practice.

"This course contained information on how to continue to honor yourself as you practice in challenging areas of medicine. This is actually the most surprising and valuable thing I got from the course. The subject content was great too... but I think the self-care aspect has been a very valuable addition to my practice."

Sarah Merritt, MD

(anesthesia and pain management)

One of the top educators in her field.

"Dr. Delia Chiaramonte is the most caring, experienced, and knowledgeable integrative and palliative medicine provider that I have been fortunate enough to work beside. Not only does she have an amazing impact on her patients, but she is one of the top educators in her field. I can honestly say that she has shaped my career in medicine, and I am so grateful to consider her a mentor."

Elyse Demers, MD

(palliative medicine)

I highly recommend it.

"Taking care of patients with serious illnesses is not a one size fits all; instead, it involves thinking beyond conventional medical care and treating the whole person through the integrative palliative approach. This program does an excellent job of teaching physicians all the great benefits of integrative care to patients and themselves. I highly recommend it.”

Angela Choi, MD

(palliative medicine)

So much valuable information! 

"Priceless modules that I will go back to over and over again. They are filled with so much valuable information! However the most priceless: the community of like-minded physicians who are trying to practice heart-centered healing without losing ourselves in the process, or practicing in a way that does not align with our inner path."

Mitra Ayazifar, MD
