Faculty

The program will be taught by qualified western medical doctors and Indian Vaidyas with extensive knowledge, qualifications and experience in teaching Maharishi Ayurveda to health professionals.

Dr. Gordana Marković, PhD, the Principal Professor Leading the Program

A Western medical doctor of 16 years’ experience, Dr Gordana Marković, is Head of the Specialist Medical Departments at the Primary Health Center of Zemun, one of the largest primary healthcare institutions in the Balkans. She contributes to specialist education at the Department of Social Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Belgrade, and is a member of the working group of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Serbia drafting the rulebook on conditions and procedures for practicing traditional medicine.

The Alma Mater Postgraduate Certificate in Ayurveda for Health Professionals will be the third professional training course on Maharishi AyurVeda that Dr Marković has taught.

"After many years of practicing Western medicine I can say that I became a much better doctor when I learned Maharishi AyurVeda and pulse diagnosis. Ayurveda can be used as a separate system, but it is easily integrated as a great support to conventional Western medicine. By integrating the best of these two medical systems, we can significantly improve the health of our patients in the best way possible and reach more patients in need of medical help, who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford it.”
