AIHM’s Integrative Health and Medicine Fellowship is a hybrid program designed for busy health professionals who have completed postgraduate education and hold an active license in a healthcare profession. The 1,000-hour program, which blends online learning with a clinical immersion experience, provides clinicians the opportunity to explore the diverse applications of integrative medicine and learn effective, interprofessional tools that can immediately be incorporated into their practice and patient care model.
“With patient interest in integrative therapies on the rise, and more clinicians embracing such practices, we expect more providers than ever to apply to our fellowship program this year,” said Dr. Erika Cappelluti, AIHM fellowship director .
In addition to evidence-based online learning modules and a clinical immersion, clinicians attend three retreats during the fellowship, which cover topics such as nutrition, botanical medicine, dietary supplements, biofield science, Chinese medicine, yoga, and meditation—all explored in a dynamic, interpersonal, group setting.
The AIHM Fellowship is approved by the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) and recognized by the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health. Graduating Fellows who hold an MD or DO degree may be eligible to sit for the board exam and become board certified through the ABOIM. All graduates will receive a certificate of completion and can use the FAIHM designation in their credentials.
