Mission of Pacific Rim College
The mission of Pacific Rim College is to provide education, services and research opportunities in Complementary and Integrative Medicine, amalgamating indigenous and diverse systems of healing with contemporary scientific beliefs and technology.
Pacific Rim College will be a world-leading academic institution in the field of Complementary and Integrative Medicine. The founders of Pacific Rim College were fueled by a vision of an integrated system of healing in which students study multiple healing and medical modalities at one academic institution.
As the College grows, so too will its program offerings, which will include other certificate, diploma and degree programs. Students will enrol in undergraduate programs leading to bachelor's degrees in health sciences, and new diploma and certificate programs in areas such as Nutrition, Ayurveda, Bodywork and more.
Pacific Rim College was founded in an effort to integrate medicines of the world, thereby preserving indigenous practices and increasing the global availability of sustainable health care. More than fifty percent of people from industrialized countries use some form of complementary and alternative therapy, and in impoverished regions, this proportion would likely be even greater if therapies were available. PRC is training practitioners to meet this growing demand and to help supply valuable medical skills and knowledge around the globe.
