Applied Integrative Medicine Training

‌According to a 2012 National Institutes of Health survey, one-third of US adults use complementary and integrative therapies as part of their health care.  As a health care professional, you know the importance of effective communication with your patients, especially when it comes to their care.  You are an expert in health, but do you fully understand the growing field of Integrative Medicine?

The Center for Integrative Medicine, part of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, has developed an evidence-based training program designed to give health care professionals not just the fundamentals of Integrative Medicine, but hands-on experience and real-life applications that can be immediately applied to their practice.

Objectives – After completing the program, participants will be able to:

• Apply integrative medicine approaches in patient care.
• Describe the evidence and indications for complementary therapeutic approaches, such as acupuncture, mind-body therapies, manual medicine, neurofeedback, and others.
• Demonstrate mind-body techniques, such as meditation and diaphragmatic breathing.
• Teach positive psychology interventions to patients when appropriate.
• Critically evaluate integrative medicine literature.
