The University of Michigan first integrated complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into its clinical training with the NIH NCCIH-funded CAM Research Center for Cardiovascular Diseases. The Integrative Curriculum for Medicine and Allied Health seeks to build upon strong collaborative relationships both within and between UM health professions schools to comprehensively integrate CAM education into allied health and undergraduate and graduate medical education throughout UM. A Multidisciplinary Advisory Committee directs the development of modular learning components. These modules, which include didactic lectures and experiential opportunities, are easily adopted by and reconfigured for individual learning environments. Additionally, UM has developed a highly successful interdisciplinary Integrative Faculty Scholars Program. An Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Holistic Health and Healing is in the planning stages. These activities create a comprehensive model curriculum for Integrative Medicine education at multiple levels.
