ACPM to Establish National Coordinating Center for Integrative Medicine

ACPM has announced that it received a notice of award from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to be the National Coordinating Center for Integrative Medicine.





ACPM has announced that it received a notice of award from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to be the National Coordinating Center for Integrative Medicine.The purpose of the coordinating center is to provide technical support for Preventive Medicine Residency and other health professions training programs interested in incorporating evidence-based integrative medicine content in their training.

This is an important milestone for the College, representing the culmination of sustained and targeted advocacy efforts with HRSA officials to promote the unique training and skill sets of preventive medicine physicians. Under a companion funding announcement, 12 Preventive Medicine Residencies have been funded as Integrative Medicine Programs (IMPs) to develop and incorporate integrative medicine curricula and teaching into their residency training programs.

These awards will help expand ACPM's brand and will infuse new dollars into the residency training pipeline.

Please see the press release for more information.

Sincerely,

Michael A. Barry, CAE
Executive Director
