The University was founded by Valerii Pokanevych (1950-2012) — Honored Doctor of Ukraine, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor, General Directorof the Ukrainian Association of Traditional Medicine, Chief Freelance Specialist of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine in “Folk and Alternative Medicine”.

Valerii was at the origins of building a system of human resources in the field of folk and alternative medicine of Ukraine. Thanks to his initiative and participation in 1998, the “Doctor of Folk and Alternative Medicine” specialty was launched and included in the list of medical positions in health care facilities.

In 1992, Valerii Pokanevych established Kyiv Medical University. Its work was based on the need to introduce the most effective, scientifically sound methods and tools of folk and alternative medicine to the complex therapy of diseases in the system of the Ukrainian medical institutions. The implementation of this concept is reflected in the functioning and development of a new type of higher medical educational establishment, where today’s education is a combination of the principles of both classical and folk and alternative medicine – something V.Pokanevych dreamed of so much.
