Maharishi University of Management (MUM) is now partnering with a second medical school in the Caribbean, which in this case will entail the school's entire curriculum being designed to offer integrative medicine and Consciousness-Based education.

American University of Integrative Medicine on the island of St. Maarten has signed a memorandum of agreement with MUM, and officials from the school visited campus earlier this month to finalize the details of the collaboration.

That collaboration will entail three facets. The first will be a seven-year BS–MD program that will include three years of study of pre-integrative medicine at MUM and then four years at AUIS.

"It will be seamless, with the students learning about Maharishi AyurVeda and integrative medicine here on campus for their BS degree and then continuing their Consciousness-Based education for their MD degree at AUIS," said Robert Schneider, MD, dean of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health.

The students will then go on to their residency training in the US that's required of all new MDs.

MUM will be enrolling students for this new pre-integrative medicine track starting next February.

The second facet of the collaboration will be for students who have done their undergraduate work elsewhere. AUIS, which has over 300 medical students, is collaborating with MUM to orient their curriculum to Maharishi AyurVeda and integrative medicine. All medical students entering AUIS beginning the fall of 2016 will take the new curriculum.

The third facet of the agreement entails students from AUIS coming to Fairfield during the clinical rotation period of their medical degree for two of their rotations. All students will be required to take an integrative medicine rotation in the Maharishi AyurVeda clinic and a medical research rotation at MUM's Institute for Natural Medicine & Prevention.
AUIS came under new ownership about two years ago, and was renamed American University of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Schneider said.

"The new owners decided on their own to offer a holistic approach to medical education, as reflected in their name," Dr. Schneider said. "Then they learned about MUM's ongoing MD/MS program, and immediately decided they wanted to collaborate with us to bring the knowledge of total health to their students."
