The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM) Interprofessional Fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine is accepting healthcare practitioner applicants and awarding scholarships for the Oct 2021 session. The fellowship is a 1,000-hour hybrid program for clinicians who aim to become leaders in integrative health and medicine. Scholarships are available on a limited basis in licensed providers working with the underserved; allied healthcare professionals; licensed providers from and/or working with BIPOC communities, and more. “We encourage healthcare practitioners from a broad range of professions into our program as we know that we can improve healthcare through collaboration and sharing perspectives amongst all providers,” says Mimi Guarneri, M.D., FACC, ABOIM, founding AIHM president. “We provide highly effective tools that can be integrated in their own practice to ultimately have a ripple effect of health and wellness through communities and cities.”
Fellows are licensed clinicians or licensed healthcare providers many who have their M.D. or D.O. or a master's degree and the graduates of the fellowship apply their integrative approach to health and medicine in their work nationwide as doctors, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and naturopaths among other professions. The curriculum focuses on integrative disease management, clinical immersion and self study, nutrition, botanicals and supplements, environmental and global health, and more. There are three retreats that focus on the community and connection and reinforces the curriculum through experiential sessions in the beginning, middle, and end of the program. There is also one clinical immersion experience that offers virtual input from expert faculty on actual patient case studies to help address patient needs. Fellowship tuition is about $26,000 and they offer equitable pricing through scholarships, institutional support, and match programs, as 50 percent of Fellows are eligible for scholarships.
