April 1st – September 30th, 2021
Welcome to the world’s first comprehensive online CME ketamine medical provider training program for psychiatrists, anesthesiologists, physicians, CRNA’s, NP’s, PA’s, and other allied healthcare providers. This program is designed to prepare you for certification and establish a standard of care and best practices for ketamine protocols for mental health conditions and pain syndromes.
We are currently accepting participants. Please register early as spaces are limited. This page has information about the course overview, who the program is designed for, and more.
Who should join the Ketamine Medical Provider Training?
A collaboration between IPI and ASKP3 for medical providers who want their ketamine clinic to provide the gold standard of training. ASKP3 is the foremost peer association of ketamine providers so you can have peace of mind that your care is meeting the highest level of scrutiny.
This program is definitely for you if:
This online six-month course, taught by more than 15 leaders in providing ketamine, will teach providers all the details of evidence-based ketamine treatment for mental health and pain syndromes. It will also go into the details of routes of administration, psychedelic medicine, aftercare, building a business, and how ketamine works with other types of therapies.
Graduates will be adequately prepared to sit for the certification exam provided by the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists & Practitioners (ASKP3), slated to become available in late 2021.
The hard truth about mental illness
The field of psychiatry has achieved many important advances in technology and pharmacology over the last few decades. But despite these advances in psychiatry, it has become painfully clear the traditional approach is failing.
Depression is now the leading cause of disability worldwide and is predicted by 2030 to be the leading cause of the global burden of disease by the World Health Organization.
300 million people in the world suffer from depression, of which a third are not responding to conventional treatments. That’s 100 million people in desperate need for a better standard of care.
“Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades. First and most important, several studies demonstrate that ketamine reduces depression within six hours, with effects that are equal to or greater than the effects of six weeks of treatment with other antidepressant medications. Second, ketamine’s effects have been noted in people with treatment-resistant depression. This promises a new option for people with some of the most disabling and chronic forms of depression, whether classified as major depressive disorder or bipolar depression. Third, it appears that one of the earliest effects of the drug is a profound reduction in suicidal thoughts.”

Unfortunately, traditional medication approaches for treating patients with mental health and pain conditions are falling short.
Our goal is to equip providers with the cutting-edge tools and expertise to confidently practice at the forefront of innovative healthcare.
