Vitae Pondera College of Natural Medicine (VPCNM) is a privately-funded college that promotes superior educational standards through the blending of theoretical philosophies of holistic health  and evidence-based research of natural medicine and nutritional protocols. Our mission is to provide a learning experience for each student that instills respect, accountability, integrity and academic excellence, within a supportive and challenging learning environment that allows creativity, innovation, compassion, and expanded problem-solving skills. Students are encouraged to be highly interactive, inquiring, and self-empowered participants in their learning process. They are advised to  optimize all academic, technological, community, and spiritual resources available within their own community, for the purpose of professional excellence in natural, non-invasive health support and preventative health care.


Self-paced, online learning is available within a customized, hybrid program which provides on-site classes and lectures, clinical study and professional internship opportunities.

VPCNM is accredited and certified by the American Associtation of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). The AADP Certification & Accreditation Board is recognized by both traditional and non-traditional holistic schools and colleges world-wide as an independent accrediting board for alternative health educational institutions and programs.


Many schools and colleges that wish to be approved by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), realize that it is a long and expensive process. Many schools that have received accreditation by the DOE sought professional accreditation first. The AADP has provided professional accreditation status to many schools that now are recognized by the DOE and Private Post-Secondary Educational agencies. VPCNM continues this process to acheive the highest levels of quality educational recognition and achievement.
