Entheogenic Medicine Training Program

At Synaptic we offer module-based training in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, as it is commonly called, but we prefer the term entheogenic medicine. Our program will make graduates eligible for licensure to provide psilocybin services in accordance with Oregon’s Psilocybin Services Act. In partnership with AIMS Institute in Seattle, we will also be offering complimentary training in ketamine and ayahuasca.

Naturopathic students seeking preceptor hours are encouraged to get on the waitlist early for this opportunity.
