It is with great delight to welcome you to our website, and it is with gratitude and pride that I serve this now long-established association as Secretary General. To me, it is nothing short of a miracle that for 35 years generations of practitioners and physicians have been able to be thoroughly vetted and/or educated by our excellent international partner institutions, all of this on a non-commercial basis. There are not enough words of gratitude for all the medical professionals, legal experts and lecturers who work for IAAT out of idealism. They all deserve my sincere respect, but above all the warmest wishes from the many people who have been helped thanks to their tireless efforts.

Kevin C. Walter, Ph.D.
Dean of the Curriculum Department since 2016
For as long as IAAT has existed, two values have been paramount: high academic standards and an exceptional level of professionalism. Since taking office as Dean of the Curriculum Department, I have continued to expand the number of our international partners in advanced learning and improving medical service standards, especially in developing countries. Collaboration with medical organizations around the world, regardless of political issues, is of utmost importance to us.

Decisions about your health care are important; this includes decisions about whether or not to use complementary treatments. Complementary health approaches include natural products and practices for the mind and body. Natural products include herbs (also known as botanicals), vitamins and minerals, and probiotics. Natural products are widely available, readily available to consumers, and often sold as dietary supplements. Spiritual and physical practices include a large and diverse group of procedures or techniques administered or taught by a trained practitioner or teacher. Examples include yoga, meditation, and acupuncture. Some complementary approaches do not fit neatly into any of the previously mentioned groups, such as the practices of traditional healers, Ayurvedic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy, and functional medicine. When considering complementary medicine approaches, it is important to take responsibility for your health by being an informed consumer. Educate yourself and consider what scientific studies have been done on the safety and efficacy of the product or practice that interests you. When looking for a reliable complementary medicine practitioner, you should contact your healthcare provider, a local hospital, or a professional organization that promotes evidence-based medicine, such as us.
TRUST IS GOOD
but control is better.
TO BE AN ISLAND OF TRUST
The International Association of Therapists & Medical Doctors™ (IAAT) with about 25,000 members worldwide has maintains a database with the complete information of its members. Each piece of information is meticulously reviewed in a multi-step process before being recognized by the legal department. Our database is updated on the first day of each month, and physicians who fail to notify IAAT of changes in their status within five working days irrevocably lose their membership. To our knowledge, IAAT is the only entity that offers this service across borders, globally and at no cost to private requesters. As an international organization of medical professionals, we are politically neutral, recognizing that different cultures lead to a diversity of political systems and policies.
