Frequently Asked Questions

The Leslie Korn Institute For Integrative Medicine is neither a regulatory nor licensing organization and therefore not sanctioned to certify, license, or otherwise bestow the legal authorization to practice as a nutritionist, physician, or mental health professional.
Certification does not warrant that a program or its examination certifies a candidate’s competence. Nothing about this program or its examination is intended to replace, override, or conflict with licensing requirements for health professionals and their requirements for practice in their state of residency and practice.
