“Integrative Medicine in Switzerland: Yes, We CAM”
Pierre-Yves Rodondi, MD
Osher Center for Integrative Medicine
1545 Divisadero Street, Room 526
Complementary medicine has been written into the federal constitution of Switzerland since 2009. What impact has this political decision had on the development of complementary medicine in that country? Pierre-Yves Rodondi, MD will speak about several issues, including:
- teaching integrative medicine to medical students,
- certification of complementary medicine therapists,
- evidence-based data,
- reimbursement by insurance companies, and
- clinical care for patients in Switzerland.
He will also discuss how this development could contribute to the spread of complementary medicine abroad.
No need to RSVP, and please feel free to bring your lunch!
