The Integrative Medicine Programs

Integrative Medicine (INTM) is defined by The American Board of Integrative Medicine® (ABOIM®) and the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health as the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the practitioner-patient relationship. INTM is whole person, evidence-based medicine that makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, health care professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

Recognizing the need to prepare providers to adapt to this method of health care, the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) created unique opportunities for health care professionals to enhance their education with an online Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS) or Graduate Certificate in INTM.
