We're on a mission


Our Approach

The GIMA mission is to provide a go-to resource where busy health professionals can find evidence-based expertise in nutrition. A Nutritional Certification that qualifies graduates to become Registered Nutritional Consultant Practitioners (RNCP) allowing busy health professionals to achieve the credibility that comes with the RNCP credentials is the bedrock on which GIMA is built With over 120 hours of online multimedia lessons averaging 30 minutes lengths health professionals can easily access the lessons anytime, anywhere on any device. A busy health professional can complete the course with a minimum impact on the career, family, and lifestyle. There is no time limit to completing the program, allowing you to finish the program as fast you are able to are at the pace of your choosing.

Our Story

When the IONC approved Dr. James Meschinos Advanced Nutritional Medicine Program to qualify for both a Registered Nutritional Practitioner (RNCP) and Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner (ROHP) we immediately recognized the huge opportunity we had been given.  Because it is a fast-track program designed exclusively for the health professional in which the IONC had granted 1,000-hour credit to recognize the previous training that all licensed health professionals have, we had solved a problem that all health professionals interested in nutritional consulting had experienced.

The Global Integrative Medicine Academy could now provide an online program where busy health professionals could gain the credentials, and credibility to practice nutritional consulting with a minimum impact on their career, family, and lifestyle.

Global Integrative Medicine Academy

The Global Integrative Medicine Academy was created to satisfy a need, expressed by many health professionals, to establish credentials as experts in Nutritional Medicine. But, health professionals also needed to be able to complete the programme with a minimum impact on their career, family, and lifestyle. That is why the Advanced Nutritional Medicine and Sports Nutrition Certification Program was created.
