Do you have many people enter the Academy program who are not already in a health field?

Yes, about 40%. Our mission statement states: Founded in 1984, as an academic vocational school for professional Intuitives and for those interested in developing intuition as a pragmatic skill. Students enter the Academy with varied goals: To pursue a career as a medical intuitive, to integrate intuitive abilities into a current career, or to develop intuition for practical life awareness, self-growth and personal healing.

The mission of the Academy is to teach and empower individuals to discover and use their natural intuitive sense in all endeavors of life. The philosophy of the Academy is that everyone has innate intuitive abilities which can be developed and utilized as a natural human sense.

How many students are there in each course?

Approximately 20-35 students with a 5 to 1 student-teacher ratio. We have two semesters a year which commence in September and January.

In general, what age are people who take these courses?

18-77 years old with a median age range of 36 years old.

Can I just sign up for one course at a time?

Yes, however we give priority placement to students who enroll in the certificate program.

Is it realistic for me to expect the 6-month Intuition Medicine Certification (IMC) program to be sufficient training to start developing medical intuitive skills and a practice?

Correct, the IMC is only a starting place for learning our medical intuition modality. Also it depends upon your present developed state of intuitive skill. We have a questionnaire within the admission forms which gives us a quick view of your assessment of intuitive skills level.

Can I complete the certificate program (IMC) in about 6-months?

Yes, however the calendar dates of offerings may not allow a student to complete the IMC certificate program in a consecutive six months. Check the calendar page for dates.

If after the first class I decide this is just not a good fit for me, can I stop altogether? I’d like to get a good sense if it’s a fit before I even start.

We strongly suggest that you receive an energy systems session with one of our Faculty members or Practitioners before you enroll in a course.

After the IMC is it possible to continue with the Master Certification in Intuition Medicine (MIM) program?

Yes, with the caveat that one proceeds through another admissions process to determine ability for admittance into the Master Certification program. Student readiness to proceed is usually known by the teachers after a student participates in several of the core courses, however, sometimes it is not clear until the admissions process. As an educational institution we strive for high competency levels in our students so that upon graduation they achieve their ideal goal, as well as, master the Intuition Medicine® methodology.

I’m interested in the MIM 2019 program, but see it costs $6,000. Is there a way to make payments instead of paying all at once?

Yes, MIM students can pay their tuition in quarterly installments of $1,500.

Tuition may be paid online via PayPal (transaction fees apply) or via mail.

Can I make online payments for courses without incurring the PayPal service charge?

Not for online payments. For those who choose to pay via PayPal, there is a small transaction fee that PayPal charges. To avoid the fee, you can postal mail a check (made out to AIM) directly to the Academy:

I have been a Reiki Master for the last 13+ years, but perhaps more to the point, energy work has always been a part of my life. I am very interested in taking courses at your school and was wondering about the Healing I and II courses in particular. I read that it is necessary to take Healing I in order to take Healing II. Does this apply to all students, or only those that are new to energy work?

All students begin with Intuition Medicine: Healing I no matter their experience. We present a unique modality that requires a foundation of technical understanding and skill that is taught in the Healing I in order to reap the benefits of all the other levels.

What do graduates tend to do with the training?

I would suggest that you read the Journal section — especially the Academy of Intuition Medicine Alumni – 1987-2016

I want to learn intuitive healing tools and skills – I understand emotional or psychological issues may come up for people in this type of program, but I am not looking to regularly have a group therapy situation in class.

The Academy does not teach a psychology-based therapeutic model nor conduct any type of group therapy. We train students in the art and science of energy healing and the development of the natural human sense of Intuition.

I live too far away to attend in-person. Do you have online learning?
Yes! Our new school, the Academy of Intuition Medicine Online (AIMO) has launched. AIMO brings our unique intuitive development courses to interested students, worldwide. You can study at your own speed, when you want, and wherever you are.
