Why College of Integrative Medicine?


Thank you for visiting CIM.  As the the fastest growing leader in on-line Integrative Medicine education today, CIM is committed to helping doctors expand their practices and move them toward becoming the primary integrative medicine practitioner in their community.  Earning an integrative medicine certification has never been more convenient or universal in scope.   We do more than just teach integrative medicine.  We show our doctors how to apply it in practice.


Professional Solutions

Affordable, Cost Effective, & Flexible

CIM's program is the most cost effective comprehensive integrative medicine program available that includes the functional medicine component.  Unlike comparable programs that average $31K - $53K, there are no holding fees, application fees, or otherwise hidden costs.  We understand the expenses of running a practice so we offer affordable interest free payment plans of 6 or 12 months. Learning on-line means that you don't have to close your practice, pay for airfare, hotels, or other expenses.  You control when you learn with 24/7 unlimited access and without worry about completion deadlines.

Free Patient Management Tools

All students receive a free subscription ($540 annual value) to CIM's Clinical Reference Library which is packed with hundreds of treatment protocols, interactive patient management tools, case presentations, and more.

What Health Care Professionals are Saying About CIM

Dr. Matin

After a lifetime of education, the online program offered by the College of Integrative Medicine has by far been the most valuable academic experience I have ever had. At first I was a little skeptical about the depth and value an online program can offer but was motivated primarily to accumulate more credentials. As the course progressed I found myself constantly inspired from the engrossing information provided in the lectures and would google details of the material to a depth of crystal-clear comprehension. This is something I’ve never had the opportunity to do in normal academia, not only because of the time constraints that come with a didactic classroom but also because it is really easy to simply lose track of blocks of information during a live lecture. I found myself finally understanding concepts and subjects that have been taught to me multiple times in the past but never fully assimilated into intuitive knowledge.

And that, I would say, has been the greatest value of this program. It was an extremely in depth and up to date expansion of my entire scientific education, and I now walk out with an intuitive understanding of human health like never before. This allows me to understand health problems to a depth most of my colleagues are incapable of surmising, and solve health problems that have never been solved before.

Thank you Dr. Sodano for putting together such a profound and complete program.

Sincerely,  Dr. Shamim Matin DC, DABCN, DACBSP, CSCS, CIHP


 Dr. Bastidas"I had the privilege of being a student of Dr.Sodano during my postgraduate diplomat in internal medicine and would always look forward to his lectures. Dr. Sodano has a genuine concern for our profession and for his students to be able to stand "Toe to Toe" as I remember the late Dr. Kessinger often said. The course of instruction can be overwhelming but Dr. Sodano brought application from his experience as a practicing physician to his instruction. We are fortunate in our profession to have the dedication of extremely capable physicians like Dr.Sodano that continue to sacrifice their time and efforts to others. ~ Dean Kenny, DC, DABCI
