Education Overview

Female medical studentIntegrative Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center has as its primary mission the integration of conventional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The program has a very strong emphasis on education, groundbreaking research, and clinical services.

Because complementary and alternative medicine was excluded from conventional education and research settings and activities for so long, there's a lot of work to be done to explore and validate the many diverse approaches to prevention and disease.

With training in the field of integrative medicine, students gain knowledge about integrative care and function as a skilled guide/adviser to the patient and a collaborative member of multidisciplinary and integrative patient care teams -- one who can work effectively with both CAM and conventional practitioners.
