SCSK 506 Integrative Medicine

Jacqueline Stanley, PhD

This is a one-credit pass/fail selective that introduces students to a number of complementary therapies defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a division of the US National Institute of Health (NIH). This selective relies heavily on visiting professors, as well as on local practitioners to deliver material in a cohesive manner based on their area of expertise. The selective consists of eight lecture hours, two quizzes, and 14 workshops to be completed in a minimum of two terms, but a maximum of five terms. Although the lectures are open to everyone, students who wish to participate in the workshops, or receive credit on their transcript, must officially register for this selective.
