Byrd Rider Utopian Healthcare Institute (U-Hi)

Healthcare workers and healthcare students are not fully equipped with stress coping skills. According to research, the industry abounds with physically and mentally drained, burnt-out, and even sick healthcare workers and healthcare students. 

U-Hi’s monumental purpose is to improve global health results for the patient AND the healthcare provider.  Unlike other approaches, U-Hi’s fellowship education focuses on healing the healer first with a bio-psycho-social program, then afterward refocuses on equipping the healer with psychological and social patient skills to supplement the workers’ and students’ biological licensures.

I am here, among others, to fulfill the prophecy of the current Pope Francis, “This is  not an Era of Change, this is the Change of an Era.”   – Dr. Kim Byrd-Rider

Utopian-Healthcare Institute (U-Hi)

Professional Fellow

We weave together state-of-the-art  hard science research and cutting-edge holistic mindful theories in live and online college courses, certifications, and continuing education.

Healthcare workers have the power, the environment, and the reach to shift us all towards Nirvana, but first, they must learn the way, shift themselves, and forge forward on the path of self healing.

During our courses, healthcare workers learn how to re-organize towards healthy self actualization to transform themselves. Then, they can teach their patients how to transform during treatments using the tools we provide. Our coursework teaches ground-breaking treatment tools to be used in a new more-powerful “Utopian” healthcare system.

Join us. Learn the magic. Start healing.
