In the state of Georgia, those interested in practicing integrative medicine must have the proper educational and practical background in order to treat patients. People with various backgrounds in a health care field usually obtain further education in a discipline such as chiropractic, massage therapy, or acupuncture. In addition, they may join forces with other types of physicians and alternative health experts to form a practice that offers many choices for patients. A typical requirement for training in integrative medicine is to have a bachelor’s degree and/or up to 5 years of experience in a medical or allied health field.

Because education and training for many of these disciplines takes a significant amount of time, it would not be uncommon for an integrative medicine professional to focus only on one additional therapy. For example, a registered nurse may invest time, money, and energy into becoming a licensed massage therapist. Or a pharmacist may become a registered herbalist, combining both the chemical knowledge of traditional pharmaceuticals with the knowledge of the natural healing properties found in herbs.

Some medical schools are now offering courses in non-traditional methods of treatment; some information, depending on the modality, is available through online courses. Of course, to best serve the patient, the education for both the traditional and non-traditional therapies should be learned from accredited institutions and include supervised, practical experience.
