The Covid 19 crisis has highlighted the shortcomings of our Health care systems: if on one hand the biotechnological progress underwent indisputable successes, it failed on the other hand in reaching out to those who suffer. 

Many people felt abandoned, confused and subjected to abstract rules. 

Many people felt a lack of transparency in the management of the pandemic. 

A large portion of the population felt they were and are still being denied all available treatments due to a health system that follows rigid protocols mandated by the government rather than considering the individual risk/benefit ratio. 

In order to build a new vision of medicine, it is necessary to appeal to the individual ethical impulse that leads to the mutual support between people. 

While remaining within the scope of the laws in place, this initiative  must not be subjected to any preconditions.

Our project: a paradigm shift

In our School we aim to train a new kind of therapist, in the broadest sense of the term, to challenge, first and foremost, chronic-degenerative diseases, the true pandemic of the modern world. 

The goal is to treat the patient wholistically, focusing on his or her unique traits, history and environment. 

To achieve this, Medicine and Psychology must collaborate with other disciplines which have never been considered thusfar, in order to expand their context to caring for the whole person, rather than just being  a physical healing or treatment.

A change in the context must not be seen as a waste of energy but as a way to better serve the needs of a sick person.

A disease expression is the way each person, with his history and his biological and psychological peculiarities, interacts with the environment in the widest sense of the term (from food consumed to the air the patient breathes, through his social, family and work environments). 

Wholistic therapy means recognising, together with the patient, the elements that can be modified to improve the quality and duration of  life. 

Wholistic therapy requires knowing all aspects of the patient which  requires sympathetic thought and openness to understanding.

We firmly believe that understanding others is itself therapeutic.

The wholistic approach must be merged with the most modern specific advances in medicine. 

Literature, medical and psychological studies are key elements to understand when trying to drive the medical field to walk non-traditional paths.

In short, we must try to train a “new” therapist who:

  1. can freely choose a wholistic therapeutic path together with his patient: need for philosophical and epistemological training 
  2. knows how to recognize and respect the human being’s  soul (emotions and feelings) and spirit (values ​​and conscience ) 
  3. can draw on all the recent knowledge of the relationship between body, mind and soul.
  4. Can draw directly from his knowledge of medical science but also from biochemistry and biophysics.
  5. Can face and choose among complementary medical fields using a scientific criterion to blend the best course of treatment or therapy for each patient.
  6. Is not conditioned or limited by economic and/or ideological interests of any kind, even though he operates in an area where they inevitably exist. These interests must therefore be recognized in order not to interfere. 
  7. Is able to deal with the recent acquisitions of quantum medicine in biology and medical treatment.
  8. Is able to enhance the collective contributions such as those expressed by the Medical Community already existing in Ippocrateorg and others from similar communities in the psychological field, obviously built on different premises.

It is clear that healthcare professionals will maintain their own skills and specialization as well as their vision of the world, but are also key to opening new horizons and breaking old patterns of patient care.


Each topic will be treated by instructors with specific skills, who have also made a value-related choice in the paradigm shift.

The relationship between teachers and learners will be based on a profound understanding of values.

On site classes will focus on introspection (work on the Self), wholistic patient care and case management. 

The online classes will focus on the topics listed below.

Presentation of the School and beginning of the courses

The School of Hippocrates is open to PhD in Medicine and Psychology. Applications from other  professions, who regularly deal with patient, will also be taken into consideration.

The total cost of the two-year course is 1,600 euros. Payments will be made annually upon registration.

To apply for the course a pre-registration will be requested. Pre-registration is free of charge and non-binding.
Pre-registrations will open on November 7 and will close on November 21.

Applications will be examined and approved by the course chairs. 

The course will be structured with online classes and on site classes.
On site classes will be scheduled for a total duration of a couple of weekends for each year of the course.
To get the final degree the 50% of online and the 50% of on site classes must be attended.

At the end of the two-year course of study it will be possible to take a final exam (upon registration). The course attendee will be solemnly sworn in by reading the Hippocratic document and will be finally awarded of the Recognition “Memento Hippocratis”.


As already mentioned before, on site classes will focus on introspection (work on the Self), wholistic patient care and case management.
More information will be available for all the attendees.
Online classes will consist in a total number of 100 hours per year + 40 extra hours related to clinical practice updates.
