The Pastoral Medical Association-Health Professional Licensing Administration

Faith-Based & Evidence based Medicine of the 21st Century- Federally Registered & Authorized to issue Class B National Licensing

The mission of the American Association of Integrative & Pastoral Medicine© (also known as The Integrative Pastoral Medical Association) & The National Commision-Apprenticeship & Certification Board of Integrative & Pastoral Medicine® is to protect the public by certifying and regulating practitioners of Integrative, Pastoral & global humanitarian based healthcare services. The board will promote pastoral based healthcare excellence and will foster communication within the profession and with the public.

The National Commission-Apprenticeship & Certification Board, established  in 1996 via charter & ecclesiastical legislature & subsequently registered with the United States Trademark & Patent Organization as a Nationall Class B occupational licensing & certifying authority(Certification Mark/Licensing), is empowered to protect the public by licensing and regulating Integrative & Pastoral Medicine physiciens*, doctors therapists, educators, consultants, humanitarian medics & professional pastoral counselors in the United States & Internationally.

A seperate Board Certification process is established to ensure that additional required clinical and practical standards are met in order to uphold the Integrity and value of the Licensure standards.

Unlike other phony organizations with similar sounding names who have very low standards in regards to their "religious" certificatios and licensing, in which pretty much anyone with money can obtain without much quality evidence based healthcare education, we have strict rules in regards to the acdemic education and clinical skills training each practitioner has according to national and international standards. We can assure all of our practitioners have met the minimum high standards we have set to become licensed and board certified in Integrative & Pastoral Medicine & Humanitarian Medicine professions/. Our licensure are dual in nature, both eccclesiastical and professional as per the USPTO authorization to issue Certification Marks aka licensure and registrations. 


  • To protect the health, safety and welfare of the public in the matters of care provided by Pastoral Medical & Pastoral Healthcare Practitioners in the USA & Internationally.

  • To establish professional standards, regulate the official definition &  scope of practice of Integrative Pastoral Medicine® as a primary care, specialty care & humanitarian healthcare service within the mainstream global Integrative & holistic healthcare community

  • To ensure practitioners have met highly specialized academic, clinical, moral & interpersonal skills & training in order to effectively practice the profession & ministry of "Integrative Pastoral Medicine®"


The mission of the IPMA/NC-ACBIPM is to first give honor & credit to the Eternal Creator, who is the source of all healing, sciences, herbal medicines & intellectual advancment that has existed since the beginning of time & continues to evolve throughout each generation. Our responsibility is to protect the public by improving upon standards of faith based healthcare offered by licensed & registered practitioners through ensuring competency in education, clinical skills, spiritual/moral growth & development and enhancing communication with the pastoral medical profession and the public.

  •  We aspire to bridge the gap between faith & science  so that we can promote a greater hope & more effective "healing arts"  to the nations.

  • To educate practitioners, the public, academic institutions & government authorities and promote a better understanding of Biblical Talmudic Medicine(Jewish Medicine), wihich is the underlying basis for Pastoral Medicine philosophy,  and its relevance to modern evidence based medical sciences and its history and connection to Ayurvedic and Chinese Medical Sciences and foundational roots to Western Medical and Naturopathic Medical Sciences. Talmudic Medicine(as Well as Islamic and Greek Medicine) is the missing link to the evolution and development of Western Medicine, just as Judaic Religion and  culture is the root and foundation of Western Civilization, a fact that is taught in all academic, religious and govermental institutions.

  • We seek to maintain a board of practitioners with a diversity of talents, skills & callings, in a evidence & faith  based capacity, who are able to work & network together in a cooperative environment for the greater good of the global community. Integrating both Allopathic practitioners(i.e. MDs, DO's, Nurses, Physiotherapists & Psychotherapist) & Natural Medicine practitioners(i.e.IMDs, NMDs, DNMs,OMDs, DC's, Midvives, Acupuncturists & Pastoral Counselors/Naturopathic Psycho-therapist) who have chosen to incorporate the  Pastoral Medicine sciences into their practices & specialities in order to give the public a more empowered choice of healthcare services that can meet all of their needs, physically, spiritually/culturally and mentally. 

  •  This includes promoting "interfaith" & "cultural diversity" compentency training & continuing education for all practitioners & encouraging practitioners to work within their own religious affiliations & also to practice with sensitivity with regards to patients cultural & spiritual diversity.

  • It is through this mission that "true Integrative medicine" is established. 

We are the only Pastoral Medical Licensing Board in the United States that is registered with the Federal Government & has the Legal rights to define & regulate the scope of practice of the profession of "Pastoral Medicine®" through the USPTO to issue Certification Marks & National Class B Occupational Licenses in Integrative & Pastoral Medicine®.

**Warning: In order to prevent confusion of the public due to other organizations engaging in copyright and trademark infringement by using a similar name as the Integrative Pastoral Medical Association, including IPMA and PMA, and to ensure the Integrity of our Associations name & reputation is not attached to or associated with the negative publicity and reputation of other organizations, The Board has chosen to change the name of this Association to "The American Association of Integrative & Pastoral Medicine©  Always check the background of any organization you plan to join for their Board Certifications and/or Licensing. There are quite a few organizations that use religion as the basis for their practice but do not have high standards of accountability & may actually be foreign entities. Some use fraudulent Soveriegn Citizen Tactics to prey upon & take away their practitioner rights without the practitioners informed consent. Some Organizations with similar sounding names are linked to(or have members who are) false ecclesiastical orders & organizations connected with International Banking Fraud & other Schemes. PLEASE PLEASE beware that you may end up signing your rights away to some false foreign Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction!!.  If you are unable to reach an alleged Board Certification or Licensing Authority by phone or they only provide email or a PO BOX as the only contact or if they are not based in the USA but claims to operate in the USA, beware of them, because you will NOT have any legal remedy with a non domestic organization should they abuse your rights or should you have any grievances!! They are most likely frauds(this does not mean that all Int'l non domestic organizations are fraudulent, as we are affiliated with several reputable international certification organizations, just do your homework first).
