The first International Congress for Educators in Complementary and Integrative Medicine (www.icecim.org), jointly sponsored by the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine (CAHCIM), the Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Health Care (ACCAHC), and Georgetown University, will take place October 24-26, 2012, in Washington, DC. Dr. Shelley Adler, the Director of Education at the Osher Center, is serving as co-chair of the program committee.
Dr. Adler stated, “Our goal is to advance the field of integrative medicine education through the sharing of best practices in the development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of curricula and teaching methods; the strengthening of existing partnerships; and the development of new collaborations.”
Everyone with an interest in integrative medicine education is encouraged to attend: educators, clinicians, researchers, and students–from all CAM professions, as well as biomedical professions (including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, and physical therapy).
Proposals for the following presentation formats are welcome:
- Large group presentations
- Panel discussions
- Small discussion groups
- Educational resources exchange
The deadline to submit an abstract or session proposal is June 15.
