Funding Information:
The Leadership and Education Program for Students in Integrative Medicine (LEAPS into IM or LEAPS) is a weeklong immersion in Integrative Medicine approaches and philosophy held each year at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, funded by the American Medical Student Association, the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine, Kripalu, and the Weil Foundation. MD and DO students from across the country apply to the program, and 30 are selected to participate. Led by an inspiring faculty with decades of experience in the practice and teaching of Integrative Medicine, LEAPS provides intense, experiential learning in mind–body medicine, energy medicine, family systems, nutrition, osteopathy, and other aspects of holistic care—whether through a solstice shamanic journey on the shore of Lake Mahkeenac or the message of redemption and healing in a session on family systems.
