The vision of the founding members of UHHVI is to develop a program of medical education based on the well-established strengths of traditional western medicine, emphasizing scientifically based research to enhance options for effective therapies during health and illness.
Our educational curriculum is based on the premise that a solid foundation in biomedical sciences is a prerequisite for a career in medicine. Our commitment to excellence and professionalism in the science and technology of allopathic medicine ensures dedicated students will be well prepared for entry to a lifelong career in medicine. As the world faces new medical challenges the medical knowledge and learned skills will serve our students far beyond their date of graduation and will inspire their quest for life-long learning.
Historically, scientific technological advances have been incorporated into elements of traditional clinical practice and have formed an essential link between research and medicine. UHHVI places a high priority on research and invites all students to participate in research activities related to their field of study. UHHVI encourages students to incorporate clinical research electives into their study plan, and to contribute to the writing and authorship of scientific articles to be published in medical journals. The academic programs UHHVI offers thereby integrate salient aspects of holistic and allopathic medical care using scientifically documented elements of nutrition and other supportive therapies with traditional medicine.
UHHVI’s mission is to provide a medical education in a humanistic manner, embracing high standards of excellence and professionalism that are incumbent for a program to facilitate a student’s pathway to success inspired by physicians throughout history. These attributes are necessary to train the leaders of tomorrow.
