Quantum University: Innovative/ affordable ways for Integrative Medicine studies by anyone, anywhere

According to their website, Quantum University is “the world’s largest institution of higher learning providing degrees [bachelor, master, doctorate, and PhD] and certification programs in holistic, alternative, natural, and integrative medicine based on the new emerging science of quantum physics.”

“Located in Honolulu, Hawaii, International Quantum University for Integrative Medicine [IQUIM or Quantum University for short] is a degree-granting institution established in 2002 that now serves over 8,000 students in 41 countries all over the world.”

“Students are offered health classes, certification courses, and degree program in an affordable iPad and/or online learning environment in order to receive the know-how and credentials necessary to become leaders in the natural health industries.”

In his book, Creative Integrative Medicine, Quantum University founder, Dr. Drouin, mentioned that his mission is “to educate anyone who is sincere about obtaining an exceptional education in the healing arts, regardless of race, political preference, gender, religion, or financial status.” He adds that “in order to increase accessibility to [their] programs and ensure the success of … students …, Quantum University “developed an advanced education platform with tools to assist [students] in the learning process.”

The iPad technology allows students anywhere in the world to take Quantum University courses. However students have to go online to do take their exams.  The iPad,  which is loaded with innovative learning and support materials, is one of the tools used by the university to enhance access to quality education while reducing student costs at the same time.

Quantum University has also introduced innovative ways to help their students financially. In particular, they have teamed up with the World Organization of Natural Medicine (WONM) to offer so-called “Pay it Forward” Tuition Awards to their students. Whereby award recipients repay the financial assistance by volunteering their time in the service of humanity upon graduation. Students receiving tuition awards also qualify for a cash award for the most distinguished service contribution of the year. 

Quantum University’s online programs allow students to continue working full time while pursuing their education.  They also “associate the degree programs with different levels of certification in specific disciplines, so that even if students had not completed the full program, they could already practice a few alternative modalities” allowing students to start earning  extra income while still continuing their studies. And the university’s “wide selection of courses and virtual classrooms can fit any budget.” As a result of the variety of options offered, “most of [the] students have already paid off all their tuition by the time they complete their degree…”
