Welcome to the world’s first comprehensive online CME ketamine medical provider training program for psychiatrists, anesthesiologists, other physicians, CRNA’s, NP’s, PA’s, and other allied healthcare providers. This program is designed to establish a standard of care and best practices for ketamine protocols for mental health conditions and pain syndromes.

Our program is fully asynchronous with continuous enrollment. You can register below. This page has information about the course overview, who the program is designed for, and more.

Check out these reviews from former program participants:

“I would highly recommend this program to any medical professional considering working with ketamine, and even to practitioners who are already working with ketamine, as I can think of no other single place to get such a comprehensive overview of the ketamine landscape and as well as the practical issues involved in using therapeutic ketamine.” – Michael Muench, MD Georgia

“Being a very busy clinician, the self-paced course was perfect!” – Ginger Williams DNP, CRNA, Alabama

“This program represents a considerable investment of time, but it is well worth it–the coverage is incredibly thorough, both theoretically and especially clinically–not only of ketamine but of alternative and adjunctive treatments. The teachers were excellent. There was ample room to ask all manner of clinical questions.” – Jay Bradley Foote, MD, New York

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:

You don’t know where to start and want to be led by experts through a step-by-step process
You’ve created protocols on your own and you want to get up-to-date on peer-established best practices to follow
You’re an anesthesia provider comfortable with ketamine, but you want to get up to date on the mental health applications of ketamine
You’re concerned about how to safely and effectively provide a mind-altering anesthetic on site
You’re interested in getting involved early in the emergence of psychedelic medicines
You feel overworked and you want to manage your own schedule with less stress while making a big difference in people’s lives

This online asynchronous 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.

“I felt the money and time was well spent in supplementing my skill set in my clinical practice in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine.” – Jeremy A. Scarlett, MD, Wisconsin

Wonderful content and context for the advanced ketamine provider aimed at improving the standard of care.” – Kazi Hassan, MD, Florida

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. 

1 in 5

Adults experience some form of mental illness each year, and of these patients many have symptoms so severe their illness dramatically reduces their quality of life, limiting what they can and cannot do.[1][2]

“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.

The IPI Ketamine Medical Provider Training

The Integrative Psychiatry Institute (IPI) is an educational institution offering the most comprehensive evidence-based training for psychiatrists, physicians, NP’s, PA’s, and other allied healthcare professionals on the latest breakthroughs in psychiatric care.

Check out this detailed review from one out our former program participants:

“I initially signed up for this course because of my interest in psychedelic medicine and to make myself a good candidate for a position in a clinic offering ketamine. It worked! I started my new job about 2 months ago and since starting I have drawn extensively upon the information presented in this course and the additional resources provided. I feel much more prepared to do this sort of work than providers who are coming in without experience. I will definitely be referring back to this course as I continue to get established in my new position. I have already recommended this course to several colleagues, and I will very likely be taking additional IPI courses as I was very impressed with the quality of this course.” – Lindsay Helm, Utah
