Mission

The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine is dedicated to engaging a global community of health professionals and health seekers in innovative education, training, leadership, interprofessional collaboration, research, and advocacy that embraces all global healing traditions, to promote the creation of health and the delivery of evidence-informed comprehensive, affordable, sustainable person-centered care.

 

Vision

We, too, have a dream.

Where healthcare is about health and available to all

Where prevention is our foundation and mechanical fixes are embraced when we need them

Where all healthcare providers work collaboratively to heal body, mind and spirit

Where sustainability is integrated into our culture, practice and training

We are the solution

Working together to establish a new paradigm of health care for humanity and the planet

 

History

The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) emerged in 2013 as a solution to our growing health care crisis. The formation of the AIHM is a bold response to a call to action for change — to transform the way we think about health and health care. The Academy is home to a broadening international community of healthcare practitioners, health seekers, and advocates connected by a shared holistic philosophy of person-centered care. The AIHM community recognizes the link between our health and the state of the planet and deeply considers the social determinants of health and the quality of our relationships to ourselves and one another.

 

One irony of the integrative health care movement is that while there is an increasing abundance of integrative practitioners, they often operate separately from one another. Interprofessional communication, collaboration, education and team-based care are at the heart of the AIHM’s mission as we unite the many voices in integrative health and medicine to transform health care together.

 

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine, as defined by the American Board of Integrative Medicine® (ABOIM) and the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine, is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

The American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) offers integrative medicine certification through the ABOIM. Completion of the physician board certification process indicates that the Diplomate has proven mastery of the experience and knowledge required to practice integrative medicine. It also reflects the physician’s commitment to adhere to the ABPS Medical Code of Ethics. The ABPS is the only multi-specialty certifying board in the United States to offer integrative medicine certification.

Andrew Weil, MD, a visionary physician and author, helped establish the field of integrative medicine as a specialty. His ideas about the treatment and care of the whole person integrate scientifically-validated therapies of conventional medicine with select practices derived from areas sometimes considered to be complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). His defining principles of integrative medicine include:

S A partnership between the patient and the practitioner

S Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness, disease – including mind, body and spirit

S Use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response

S Appropriate consideration given to use of less-invasive and less-harmful interventions, when possible, while addressing the whole person in addition to the disease.

S The concept that medicine is based on good science, is inquiry-driven and open to critical consideration of new paradigms

In addition to scientifically sound treatment concepts, the practitioner of integrative medicine espouses the broad concepts of health promotion/illness prevention and healthy living. Practitioners also are expected to exemplify these tenets and to remain open to self-exploration and self-development.
