Faculty Scholars Program

Curriculum

Faculty Scholars attend 10 full-day sessions held on the 3rd or last Friday of each month from September-June. Community and academic faculty affiliated with University of Michigan Integrative Medicine teach the sessions. Each monthly session highlights prevalent complementary, alternative and integrative approaches to particular health problems and issues. All sessions include didactic explanations of CAM, hands-on demonstrations and live patient stories, nutrition information and healthy eating, experiential practices, exploration of innovative methods to teach CAM, nuts and bolts of effective curriculum and research development, and time for small group sharing and reflection.

Session topics include:

  • Cultural Context of Integrative Health Care
  • Mind-Body Medicine
  • Alternative Medical Systems
  • Cardiovascular Disease and Integrative Medicine
  • Chronic Pain and Integrative Medicine
  • Cancer and Integrative Medicine
  • Integrative Approaches to Mental Health and Spiritual Healing
  • Herbs and Homeopathy

Scholars receive extensive reading and resource information. During the academic year, Scholars develop an educational, research or clinical service application project that they intend to implement and receive feedback from UMIM program faculty and their interdisciplinary colleagues.
