Integrative Medicine Elective for Medical Students

This is a clinic based elective at the Family Practice Centre of Integrative Health and Healing in Burlington Ontario. The length of time is up to the medical student, however we suggest between 2-4 weeks. This elective is primarily an observational experience in an integrative clinical environment. We have 2 integrative primary care MDs, 1 integrative medicine consultant MD and 6 CAM practitioners. The student will have an opportunity to spend time with all the practitioners and gain an understanding about integrative medicine and inter-disciplinary approaches to patient centered care.

Integrative Medicine Elective for Resident Physicians

Two to four week full time program similar to the student elective. Participation in patient assessment depends on previous experience. Tailored to needs of individual.
