Walter Semkiw, MD, MPH, Biography:
Walter graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Illinois in Biology. He has a Masters Degree in Public Health.
Walter Semkiw, M.D. MPH is a medical doctor, having served as a Medical Director of Unocal 76, a Fortune 500 company, and as an Assistant Chief in Occupational Medicine at a major medical center in San Francisco, where he still practices. He is also the author of the Return of the Revolutionaries: The Case for Reincarnation and Soul Groups Reunited, published in the US, and Born Again, published in India and Serbia. Dr. Semkiw provides avenues to prove reincarnation though biochemical or biophysical means, such as DNA analysis to promote the social transformation that objective evidence of reincarnation can bring. Over fifty reincarnation cases can be viewed at Walter’s web site,, and he can be contacted at:
Walter serves on the board of the Intuition Network and, for six years, was on the board of IARRT (International Association for Regression, Research and Therapies). He is a founder and the President of IISIS (Institute for the Integration of Science, Intuition and Spirit). IISIS serves as a resource to archive, study and publish reincarnation cases.

Medical Doctors and Scientists Explore Objective Evidence of Reincarnation & Past Lives. Doctors Gather at The IISIS Conference, October 3-5, 2008 in Los Angeles at the Marina Del Rey Hotel To Discuss Research, Findings and Case Studies.
Sept 17th, 2008 (Los Angeles, CA)- Since the turn of the millennium, multiple independently researched reincarnation cases have been published which demonstrate that, from lifetime to lifetime, facial features, personality traits, passions, talents, aptitudes and linguistic writing style remain consistent. Many times married couples come back together, which explains the phenomenon of “love at first sight.”  
Two independently researched cases which demonstrate these principles of reincarnation were studied by the late Ian Stevenson, MD, at the University of Virginia. For the past forty years, Dr. Stevenson, a former Chief of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, researched children who spontaneously remembered past lives. The Stevenson cases of Suzanne Ghanem and Daniel Jurdi not only demonstrate that facial features remain consistent from lifetime to lifetime, but that people can reincarnate very quickly, even a year or less following death. The observation that souls can reincarnate quickly implies that historical figures have returned in subsequent eras and may be incarnate today.
Many other independently researched cases, which demonstrate these principles of reincarnation, are found in two books by Walter Semkiw, M.D. MPH, Return of the Revolutionaries and Born Again. Included within these titles are the cases of Indianapolis Police Captain Robert Snow and Westport Connecticut Assistant Fire Chief Jeffrey Keene. A formal linguistic analysis was done by a University of California, Berkeley, linguistics professor, regarding the case of Jeff Keene. This linguistic analysis revealed that Mr. Keene’s writing structure is the same as that of his past life persona, Civil War Confederate General John B. Gordon. The reincarnation cases of Jeff Keene and Robert Snow have been featured on the television show, Proof Positive.  
Another independently researched case involves Barbro Karlen, who has had memories since childhood of being Holocaust victim Anne Frank. At the age of ten, on her first trip to Amsterdam, Barbro knew the way to the Anne Frank House without directions and she knew where artifacts should have been located inside the Frank House, artifacts that had been removed for preservation. Barbro was a childhood writing prodigy, like Anne Frank.  
Anne Frank was persecuted as a Jew and died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945, while Barbro Karlen was born into a Christian family in Sweden in 1954, demonstrating that religious, national and ethic affiliation can change from one incarnation to another. The observation that souls can change such affiliations, as revealed by scientific reincarnation research, has great societal implications. Indeed, if it was broadly understood that we can change religion from one incarnation to another, then the Holocaust and the events of 9/11 could have been prevented. It is the transformative effect that evidence of reincarnation will have on society that makes Walter Semkiw, M.D. MPH passionate about reincarnation research.  
Another set of reincarnation cases featured in Semkiw’s  books have been solved through Kevin Ryerson, the intuitive who has worked with Shirley MacLaine for over twenty years and who is featured in three of her books, including Out on a Limb.   Kevin works with “Ahtun Re”, who has demonstrated the ability to make accurate past life matches. 
To conduct reincarnation research, with a focus on objective evidence of reincarnation, a non-profit organization called IISIS, the Institute for the Integration of Science, Intuition and Spirit was founded. IISIS is having a conference at the Marina del Rey Hotel October 3-5, 2008 where presenters will be telling their own reincarnation stories. In these cases, individuals have the same facial features, personality traits and talents as they did in prior incarnations. Some presenters, who represent independently researched cases, will describe their past lives in-person including Walter Semkiw, M.D. MPH, Clair Francomano, MD, and Norm Shealy, MD, PhD, Barbro Karlen, Peter Teekamp, Wayne Peterson, Erik Berglund and others.
“If people have the same facial features, personality traits and talents from one incarnation to another, it is possible that the soul may also program DNA”, states Clair Francomano, MD, former Clinical Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute. Francomano will discuss the state of the art of human genome research and ways that DNA may be utilized in reincarnation research. Also attending is Norm Shealy, MD, PhD, who unexpectedly discovered a past lifetime as British physician John Elliotson and who was later intuitively guided to Elliotson’s office in London.
Barbro Karlen, who has had memories since childhood of being Anne Frank. Peter Teekamp, who heard the word “Gauguin” echo in his mind as a child and who later unconsciously replicated the artistic development of Paul Gauguin. Wayne Peterson is a retired US Diplomat and Director of the Fulbright Scholarship. Program, who in childhood, had memories of two past lifetimes, which were later historically validated through the assistance of the Master Maitreya will also be in attendance.
Erik Berglund, who spontaneously realized that he is the reincarnation of Hans Christian Andersen and who was later reunited with the reincarnation of the father of Andersen. Erik will provide entertainment on Saturday evening, which will feature storytelling, in the tradition of Hans Christian Andersen, and harp music.
Cases will also be explored through Kevin Ryerson, a world famous intuitive who is featured in three of Shirley MacLaine’s books and who has appeared on Oprah and other national programs.
