The Centre for Integrative Medicine was launched on October 17th during an event at The Scarborough Hospital in Toronto. Canadians are using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in overwhelming numbers. A partnership between the University of Toronto (U of T) and The Scarborough Hospital (TSH), the Centre will harness the considerable scientific and clinical expertise of these two institutions to evaluate CAM and its integration with conventional medicine.
Acupuncture Canada partners with the Centre to offer acupuncture training to U of T medical students. Our course, Foundations of Anatomical Acupuncture, has been made available to U of T students as a selective. We look forward to our partnership continuing and growing. And we look forward to the interesting work that is sure to come out of the Centre for Integrative Medicine.
