ICIM Directorship

The Institute of Complementary & Integrative Medicine (ICIM) is an Irish organisation established to provide the highest standard of Nutritional Therapy education in Ireland. ICIM courses combine traditional and researched based methods of healing with a contemporary perspective. Our courses are specifically tailored to those wishing to pursue a career as a Nutritional Therapist or those wanting to expand their knowledge and skills within the CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) arena for professional or personal gain. Our purpose is to produce confident and competent graduates who can look forward to interesting and varied career opportunities in the field of Nutritional Therapy and health.

Both ICIM directors are practicing nutritional therapists and accomplished lecturers so they are uniquely positioned to understand what it takes to design and deliver meaningful training in the broad field of nutritional therapy. ICIM directors are also very focused on providing continuing support and education to graduates once they qualify.
