The Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health, comprised of 75 of the most prestigious universities and health systems in North America, broadened its international network in October to include Australia’s NICM Health Research Institute, Western Sydney University

“This expansion represents the global benefits of working together to develop, share, and implement new, more efficient approaches to patient care and foster health research that advances our knowledge and promotes evidence-based integrative healthcare, said Academic Consortium Chair Francoise Adan, MD. “We are thrilled to have NICM in Australia as our newest member institution and invite their 3,000 faculty and 44,000 students to join us in networking and supporting each other with new ideas and opportunities in integrative medicine and health for all patients.” 

NICM at Western Sydney University in Australia is one of the world’s largest integrative medicine research institutes. NICM has created research relationships with universities and hospitals in China, Asia, Europe, and the U.S. and is preparing to open an academic integrative medicine center by the end of the year. The center’s goal is to provide evidence-based care, guided by clinical pathways and evidence summaries, and to create the country’s first integrative medicine patient registry.
