What Exactly is CAM?
CAM is continually gaining the respect of the Western medical system, as indicated by the nearly 100 medical schools now offering courses in alternative therapies. The University of Arizona is an exceptional model of such a school, offering the nation’s only postgraduate, two-year Program in Integrative Medicine (PIM). Founded in 1994, PIM is designed to teach small groups of physicians how to integrate holistic modalities into their practices. These doctors are committed to a fundamental redesign of medical education including such principles as:
–Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response,
–Consideration of all factors that influence health, including mind, spirit, and community,
–A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative medicine uncritically.
