Mission Statement

Our latest endeavor is to create a preschool through grade 12 program which will meet a very large public need. We will provide a free, interactive, and accredited education in an online environment to students of all ages, worldwide. Our vision is to utilize free, worldwide education to eliminate the root cause of social dysfunction. We envision a global positive social impact through innovative teaching methods that all students can learn from, using illustrated flashcards teaching individual fact units as our primary tools. We envision a school where students worldwide can gain a world-class, accredited education without having to pay tuition or travel to a central location. We envision an interactive environment, where experts everywhere can share their knowledge and students receive immediate replies to their questions.

Program 1

K-12 Online Education

Our latest endeavor is to create a preschool through grade 12 program which will meet a very large public need. As World Health Medical School we formed partnerships with traditional medical schools throughout the world. These schools provide feedback to us so that we can adapt our curriculum to meet their local needs. This is a work in progress and is on hold as we concentrate on our pre K through grade 12 program. Our target would include parents, children, educators, and others worldwide who would benefit from our program. Our target will expand to those in need of an on-line university.

Principal Officer

Dr. David Hall

BIO

Dr. Hall has had a fascination with science from an early age. He graduated from the University of Southern California School of Medicine in 1968. He went on to complete a rotating internship at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena and then pursued a general psychiatry residency at the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. He became certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in 1975. He collaborated with Beckman Instruments in developing the world's first artificial pancreas and he shares two patents with them on this device. Dr. Hall is an accomplished violinist and wrote two violin concertos. His specialization in psychiatry led him to explore the field of social psychiatry, in which society as a whole is viewed as the patient. This further led to the notion of "the root causes of social dysfunction," in which all social problem are compared to a tree, with roots, branches, and leaves. He observed that most people shortsightedly focus on the leaves of the tree, and miss the root causes. He further explored a type of meditation using theta and delta wave entrainment, and described a unifying theory of human consciousness development based on many disciplines including psychoanalysis, developmental biology, thermodynamics, and meditation.
