Advanced Competency In Integrative Medicine (ACIM) For 4th year Medical Students

This multi-component Advanced Competency (AC) is designed to develop a comprehensive approach to addressing whole health using complementary and integrative medicine therapies along with conventional medicine to optimize total health and healing. It will include in-depth learning and use of evidence-based resources for Integrative Medicine therapies. 

Students will become advanced learners in the philosophies, fundamentals, and therapies of Integrative Medicine (IM). They also develop and describe possibilities for an integrative care plan for patients with various diseases/conditions, take time to address, develop, and practice self-care, and extend and explore their learning via projects, research or further in-depth learning. 
This AC will advance the knowledge and experience of IM beyond the associated clinical rotation at Ohio State Integrative Medicine. The intention of this AC is to develop a mindset that future practitioners will incorporate IM therapies into lifestyle and treatment for their patients and themselves.

The curriculum is delivered across the 4th year for interested medical students and involves the following: Clinical Observation/skill building (~35 hrs), Self-Care Activities/Learning (~25 hours), Experiential Learning (~6 hours), Didactic Learning (~34 hours) and Scholarly Research/Activity (~70 hours). 

Please contact Dr. Diane Brogan-Habash for more details (Habash.2@osu.edu)
