The Oregon CAM Course is a collaboration between key faculty from Oregon allopathic, chiropractic, and naturopathic institutions. The project seeks to develop a 4-year longitudinal CAM curriculum for OHSU medical students. Initially, an educational monthly case conference that emphasizes evidence-based CAM knowledge and skills will be required for first and second year medical students. Advanced students may elect to follow patients through history, physical exam, clinical investigation, and integrative case conference to chosen treatment. This case conference will also provide Continuing Medical Education for OHSU faculty, community clinicians, and residents.
This program will be expanded to include integrative clinical experiences in a chiropractic clinic with a high ratio of underserved patients, a CAM lecture series, a course for third year medical students, and broader CAM electives and experiences for fourth year students and the family medicine residency program.
