Medical and Dental Universities Expand Scope to Provide Awareness and Education on Chiropractic

Vol. 14 Issue 39

Around the country, one university after another is adding features to their educational, research and library facilities to help educate their students and faculty on Chiropractic and other forms of complementary and alternative medicine.

At Tufts University in Massachusetts, the School of Medicine has received a five-year grant to offer this expanded education through the Tufts Program in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This program integrates information on Chiropractic into its four-year medical curriculum. In addition, the school's health services offer Chiropractic treatment, and its research databases expedite a study of Chiropractic effectiveness.

The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of California's San Francisco campus continues the trend by offering information on Chiropractic history, cost savings and effectiveness to all its staff and students. Their continuing education series also includes segments on utilizing Chiropractic in sports injuries.

And the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey has come on board by establishing the Institute for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This department offers a Master of Science in Health Sciences degree focusing on Integrative Health and Wellness. The university is a leader in health care research, education and patient care, and offers these diverse studies to support the integration of "evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies and medicine into clinical settings." The school offers ongoing conferences and lectures that expand their students' and faculties' awareness of Chiropractic.

This trend was assisted by a report in 2005 titled "Use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)" published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. This report recommended that, "Health profession schools incorporate sufficient information about complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into the standard curriculum at all levels to enable licensed professionals to competently advise their patients about CAM."

It looks like the word is finally getting out to the medical profession that Chiropractic not only works but it is here to stay!
