Medicine Certificate Program
• Theoretical and hands-on training in Ayurvedic Medicine
Ayurvedic Medicine is a 5,000-year-old medical system which integrates nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle counseling, special cleansing and detoxification procedures, and rejuvenation techniques to treat a person's body, mind, and soul.
Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers an extensive body of wisdom that guides practitioners on a path of health and vitality. It is not only a system that teaches how to reverse illness, it aids people in realizing their innate human potential. This ancient science of life suggests ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior modification and ways to heighten the experience of life through our senses. Ayurveda reminds us that health is the harmonious and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
The American University of Complementary Medicine’s (AUCM) 660-hour certificate program features an on-site, supervised clinical internship in Ayurvedic Medicine. The program consists of 510 hours of classroom instruction and a supervised, on-site 150 hour clinical internship for a total of 660 hours of training. Practical understanding and application of Ayurvedic Medicine are emphasized in this program.

Learn to appreciate the interaction between life and the forces of nature. This will be an interactive session to acknowledge the five elements and energies governing body and mind, body-types, metabolism, and nutrition.
“I was not prepared for the breadth and depth
of the Ayurvedic approach to wellness and healing. Our classes at AUCM
with Dr. Jay (short for Jayagopal Parla) were—like him—steeped
in Vedic knowledge, heartfelt, intuitive, and engaging. Class sessions
wove back and forth easily between theory and practice — from doshas
and marmas to cooking and massage, from philosophy and pathophysiology
to yoga postures and herbal remedies. The class had wonderful times together,
and now my husband and I—with Dr. Jay’s ongoing support and
encouragement—have a fledgling Ayurvedic practice in our own home.”
