Pacific Rim College is a Designated Private Training Institution of Holistic Medicine and Sustainable Living located on Vancouver Island in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. The college was founded to provide world-class education, modern research opportunities and premier clinical services in a variety of medical modalities.
Pacific Rim College was founded in an effort to integrate medicines of the world, thereby preserving indigenous practices and increasing the global availability of sustainable health care and advancement of resilient ecosystems practices in the context of food. More than fifty percent of people from industrialized countries use some form of complementary and alternative therapy, and in impoverished regions, this proportion would likely be even greater if therapies were available. PRC is training practitioners and professionals to meet this growing demand and to help supply valuable medical skills and regenerative food system strategies around the globe.
