The Integrative Medicine Program accepts short-term observers from all over the world. Our goal is to accept those visitors who have the opportunity to make significant contributions in the field of integrative medicine. Because of limited resources, we may be unable to accommodate visitors according to their schedule. However, we do try to coordinate with schedules as time and resources permit. The earlier an applicant plans their visit in advance, the more likely it is that we would be able to schedule your visit at a desired time.
Please keep in mind that short-term observers do not have clinical privileges to see or treat patients. A short-term observer is one who observes our program one to five consecutive days. The observer’s experience is strictely limited to watching and listening only with no patient contact and no clinical or research activity.
If you are interested in applying for a Research Internship, the Integrative Medicine Program offers two areas of research in which an intern can choose: natural products and clinical trials.
If your goals are more in line with establishing an Integrative Medicine program you may want to consider attending one of our biannual Integrative Medicine Program Workshop. This workshop is intended for health care professionals interested in learning how to set up an integrative oncology program. For more information contact:
