Fieldwork in Alternative and Complementary Therapies

"Fieldwork in Alternative and Complementary Therapies" (PMED 452) is an individualized 4th year elective for medical students interested in in-depth exploration of complementary, alternative and integrative medicine in a one-month rotation. Students may choose to delve in depth into a particular CAM experience, or choose to make shorter visits to a variety or a specific subset of CAM field experiences. Students will be asked to devote at least 20% of their time to review of the evidence-based literature, as well as to keep a journal and develop a presentation on a particular topic of interest to the medical community.
