    The PATP year-long course has been so rich and inspiring in its depth and breadth of content and the training was delivered within an inclusive, culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed container. I am very grateful for this experience and feel IPI has well-prepared me to become a competent and effective psychedelic-assisted therapist!

    The program is highly organized, well developed, with a wide range of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy topics as well and inclusion and diversity education and awareness. The teachers had a palpable sense of integrity that, in my opinion, sets this program apart from the rest. Would highly recommend this program to others.

    Fellowship Testimonials

    I think the community that we’re building is fabulous to be able to be online with so many other psychiatrists and primary care doctors who are really interested in the same approach of finding and treating root causes. And we discuss cases and discussion of the research, we talk about what’s coming up as the latest things in this field, which is so new, it’s one of the huge draws for me.

    Anu French, MDMissouri

    The faculty has gone above & beyond. Not only do they bring incredible expertise, but they have been available to answer questions. They’re genuinely interested in us becoming better providers.

    Katie Kern, ARNP, PMHNPWashington

    Everything, literally felt so meaningful and useful at this training, and it prompted even more learning since then. There is so much amazing information to learn and the value of the expert panels cannot be measured. This training was really different than other conferences, because it truly represents an integrative approach.

    Ektha Aggarwal, LCSW


    “I was so taken back at how inclusive this program was. As a therapist of color, many trainings and programs include culture as part of the program. This program was different; it did not include culture, it made it the foundation of learning from every aspect. I felt seen, heard, and understood.”

    Amy Schimmel, LCSW 


    “This training has been well organized, professional and so very inspiring! It brings together all of the elements that are at times siloed in medicine, mental health and spirituality. Highly recommend!”

    June Shibley, Pharm.D., N.D. 


    “Make sure you attend next year! There were so many integrative topics for psychiatric conditions. I was especially interested in learning about psychedelic studies, nutritional and herbal therapies, and tapering patients off drugs.”
