Psychedelic Medicine Course

Psychedelic-assisted therapy has the potential to revolutionize mental healthcare. We believe the greatest barriers to this revolution are stigma and misinformation. We also believe that education is the most powerful tool to combat those barriers.

In service to this mission, we have collated the highly compelling evidence-based data emerging from psychedelic science to create this comprehensive course.
