Integrative Psychiatry Fellowship Program Testimonials

From this experience I feel much more confident about my ability to address and treat the underlying causes of mental illness and feel more hope about the direction of the field of psychiatry. It also has been a wonderful way to feel more connected to like-minded individuals.Lana Benedek, MD, California

This information was what I was hoping to get out of residency in psychiatry, but did not. I feel my toolbox is expanding rapidly and it is exciting. I also feel a sense of renewed excitement about practicing medicine.Catherine Boyd, MD, New Mexico

I feel energized to work with some of the most challenging patients and diagnoses because my theoretical framework to explain mental health has been expanded and deepened. I have more tools to help them. I am looking forward to implementing new treatment strategies and feel more confident that I can use these cutting edge treatments.Lindsay Burke, NP, Colorado 

It was wonderful to be with a group of like-minded people. There were people from all over doing very different things in their careers. People are searching for integrative new approaches and not being defined by the old paradigm. There was a lot of useful practical information as well as an emphasis on the importance of self-care.Andrea Carlsen, MD, New York

The fellowship has been an absolutely profound, hopeful, and life changing experience for me personally and professionally. I feel so refreshed and enlivened sharing time with like-minded people who can see and feel the larger world of wellness. I knew there had to be a home for me where I could connect and belong with others who see more than symptoms and medications, but a whole people with life and energy and dreams!!!Sara Gotheridge, MD, Illinois  

Ketamine Medical Provider Training Testimonials

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

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

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, Georgia

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

This course did a superb job of covering the many ways of utilizing ketamine in psychiatric practice as well as the rapidly expanding evidence base.  I loved that the course was so inclusive.   We covered IV, oral and intranasal administration in detail, patient selection, pharmacologic and holistic maintenance strategies, ketamine assisted psychotherapy, practice models, and so much more. Garrett Deckel, MD, New York

What format are the recordings in?

The recordings are generally a video with a slide deck and the presenter.

I really loved this [program]! I am so sad it is over.

Thank you so much for fostering a community. I am very interested in continuing engagement with my IPI cohort in any way that is feasible. So much gratitude and love!Sasha Alexander, MS, Massachusetts

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 really value and respect the diversity of the lecture material, the extensive expertise of the presenting faculty, the practical experiential exercises, and the sense of shared community that was created. I found the program very engaging and well rounded and appreciated learning about somatic, transpersonal, parts work, and indigenous approaches alongside with reviews of the latest research and clinical trials. I especially appreciated the program’s emphasis on ethics and professional development. I am very grateful for this experience and feel IPI has well-prepared me to become a competent and effective psychedelic-assisted therapist! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!Shayna Kelleher, MSW, LCSW, California

The lectures were filled with deep wisdom, scientific data, case studies and lots of practical information about PAT. Wonderful lecturers. Thank you for bringing in so many giants in the field. The KAP intensive really brought a lot together for me — excellent teaching, wonderful to be in person with fellow students — and left me feeling confident that I can do this work. Studying for the final exam made me very aware of how rich this program has been. Thank you!Sally Schwager, Ed.D., Connecticut

The course did a great job really delving into the various considerations necessary for my development as a psychedelic therapist. It did not focus too much energy on one element, but instead offered a wide variety of points of view.Richard Thomas, LPC, Arizona
