Dr. Hamer is planning to set up a German New Medicine® study program in Sandefjord, Norway, where he resides since March 2007. Placed in an academic setting (University of Sandefjord), students will be given the opportunity to become certified teachers and practitioners of GNM. Until the courses are fully established, Dr. Hamer will not issue “certifications” of any kind. Hence, without written proof of such an “authorization” signed by Dr. med. Ryke Geerd Hamer, anyone claiming to be "certified", "authorized" or "approved" to teach or practice German New Medicine® is doing so under false pretenses.
