IU School of Medicine is a new member of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health, joining more than 75 of the world’s most recognized academic medical centers and health systems.

Integrative medicine is a type of medical care that combines standard medical treatment with complementary and alternative therapies. This approach to health care addresses physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness with a focus on the practitioner and patient relationship.

As a member of the consortium, IU School of Medicine will have a community of support with other prestigious institutions including a collective voice influencing change. Other membership benefits include networking opportunities, continuing medical education and special interest focus groups. The next meeting will be in June. Learn more about how to get involved by visiting this website, which will have the meeting event information when it is released.

Founded in 1999, the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health represents thousands of scientists, educators, clinicians and other health professionals who represent the mission of the organization to advance the principles and practices of integrative healthcare within academic institutions.
