Programs in Complementary and Integrative Medicine

The University of Connecticut Health Center introduced its programs in complementary and integrative medicine in 2004. The goals are to:

  • provide a forum for evidence-based alternative and complementary medicine that can be combined with conventional medical therapies to optimize healing for patients.
  • develop integrative medicine educational programs for the Health Center's residents and medical and dental students. Recently, the Department of Family Medicine at the Health Center established an “Integrative Medicine in Residency” curriculum in partnership with the University of Arizona’s Integrative Medicine in Residency program.
  • pioneer innovative research programs in herbs and other biological-based therapies, acupuncture, naturopathy, Ayurveda, energy medicine and other complementary and alternative medical fields.
  • provide programs to broaden patients' understanding of the many complementary and alternative medicine therapies.
