Application Process-what you need to know before applying

Application for Pastoral Medicine Licensure & Board certification is a voluntary contractual act entered into by practitioners who choose to practice the science of integrative pastoral medicine principles & recieve the legal rights and approvals to practice under National Class B Licensure according to the standards set by the AAIPM/ACBIPM.. The Licensure and certification is at all times considered a form of Pastoral Care. It enables practitioners  who are grounded in orthodox healthcare and sciences to incorporate pastoral care/healthcare sciences derived from Jewish Talmudic Medicine teachings & Eastern cultures into their practice and to obtain a credential as a Federally registred certification mark,which attests to their knowledge & expertise in the field and affords them the recognition & practical rights of having met an identified peer-developed standard of achievement to practice this form of pastoral care under Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the AAIPM/IPMA with Federally Registered & recognized licensing.

Integrative Pastoral Medicine Licensing is not designed to circumvent state licensing laws. Any practice prohibited in any state shall be prohibited under Pastoral Medical/pastoral counseling Licensing. As per the by-laws of Charter of the Articles of Association of the American Association of Integrative & Pastoral Medicine, Pastoral Medical/Counseling Licensing is not a license to "Practice Medicine, Nursing, Chiropractic Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine(in states where prohibited), Acupuncture, Osteopathy, Secular Counseling, Psychiatry, Dentistry, Surgery, Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy or any other practice tht is under the jurisdiction of State mandated licensing boards", unless one is a state licensed MD or other state licensed healthcare provider. In states that do no regulate natural or integrative medicine, but does not prohibit it, Pastoral Medical Licensures are designed to work under exemptions & exceptions State statutes & codes, including religious exceptions and such practices as pastoral counseling, religious practice and/or nutritional advice according to the specific state rules & the educational requirements to meet such exceptions & exemptions. Pastoral Medicine licensures & registrations specifies which State or Federal  laws, codes & statutes as well as Pastoral Medicine statutes in which such practitioner is able to legally practice and incorporate into this form of pastoral care. Thus there is no confusion, mistakes nor errors in what such practitioner is licensed and authorized to use the AAIPM Certfication Marks Licensure for as it relates to their pratice..The AAIPM has a zero tolerance for anyone who violates our codes, state & federal laws..
