FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM RECOGNITION
In 2020, the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health assumed the role of recognizing integrative medicine fellowship programs from the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM).
In this role, the Academic Consortium Fellowship Review Committee sets and monitors the educational standards for integrative medicine fellowship programs.
Fellowship Program Recognition
- Program Requirements
All integrative medicine fellowship programs must meet the minimum standards found in the standards checklist. The minimum standards have been developed to ensure all programs are preparing its graduates to sit for the certification exam.
Please note that the Fellowship Review Committee continues to evaluate the recognition program. Please contact the Academic Consortium before starting an application to ensure you have the latest standards.
New Program Recognition
New integrative medicine fellowship programs must first apply for recognition using the standard fellowship program application. Programs will be recognized for an initial three years after which the program will go through a re-recognition process. Before starting the standard fellowship application, please contact the Academic Consortium office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the initial three-year recognition process, all programs will have a re-recognition process every five years.
