Programs in Complementary and Integrative Medicine
UConn Health 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
- develop integrative medicine educational programs for the
UConn Health's residents and medical and dental students.
Recently, the Department of Family Medicine at UConn Health 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.
