Integrative Medicine School in Michigan - MI

Integrative medicine schools in Michigan provide a curriculum that can be a complement to traditional medical school, even extending throughout a traditional four-year medical school program. Web-based learning provides educational alternatives to those interested in this emerging field of study.

Curriculum covers alternative medical systems; mind and body interventions; biologically-based therapeutic approaches; manipulative and body-based methodologies and energy therapies.  Some programs also offer modules that cover acupuncture and herbs.

Introductory courses typically cover topics such as patients and populations; normal cell structure in the human body; building a beneficial relationship between doctors and patients; an introduction to normal organ systems and the immune system; normal organ systems and the human body’s musculoskeletal framework.

During the first year, one of the key courses covers alternative approaches to musculoskeletal pain, including causes, effects and treatment involving integrative medical practices. Instruction focuses on examining therapeutic techniques related to musculoskeletal conditions, including massage, chiropractic, Shiatsu, and pharmacological treatments. Discussion covers ethics, legal requirements, credentials and licensing of integrative medicine practitioners in Michigan who treat musculoskeletal conditions.

One of the classes generally taught during the second year covers the use of herbs for healing and lays the foundation for additional study in this area. Students are presented with current research in this field. Some of the herbal remedies typically studied include the use of echinacea, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, and saw palmetto.
