Steward Scholars Program and

“Seeds” Scholars Program for Anthroposophic Medicine



We are pleased to share with you the announcement of two different scholarships offered for integrative medicine fellows, residents, and medical students to learn more about the practice of Anthroposophic Medicine.

In 2020, we will have three major training conferences in the United States, as part of a world-wide celebration of 100-years of anthroposophic clinical practice, as well as a workshop at the Academic Consortium meeting in May:

Creating an Interprofessional Complementary/Integrative Healthcare Team: Using Anthroposophic Medicine and Holistic Nursing Concepts to Enhance Practice at the International Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health, April 28 - May 1 2020, in Cleveland, Ohio.

Treating the Whole Patient: A Training in Anthroposophic Medicine
May 2-9, 2020 in Chestnut Ridge, New York. This annual training conference is part of the international core curriculum for physicians, part of a rotating four-year curriculum. This year we will focus on “Seven Constitutional Patterns” in health and illness, with a special focus on mind-body connections, chronic illness, integrative psychiatry and Anthroposophic pharmacy. Scholarship offerings for the training conference include:

  • The Steward Scholars Program, which is open to all physicians (MD, DO) currently enrolled in an integrative medicine fellowship. Selected scholars are awarded full tuition and meals, plus $500 stipend towards travel or lodging costs. After the course, recipients are asked to submit a short discussion of how Anthroposophic Medicine can contribute to academic integrative medicine training.
  • Seeds Fund Scholarships, open to residents and medical/osteopathic students. Provides $500 scholarship towards the already discounted student/resident conference tuition rate.

Applicants should send a copy of their CV, plus a cover letter describing their interests in integrative and/or Anthroposophic Medicine to: paam@anthroposophy.org. Applications will be reviewed as received, with news of scholarship availability within ten days. Please submit applications for the May Training Conference no later than March 15th.
