MED 180: Integrative East-West Medicine for Health and Wellness
This course is designed to provide an overarching introduction to integrative healthcare, particularly the therapeutic approaches originated from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Students will learn (1) the theoretical underpinnings of integrative medicine and TCM, (2) the management of personal well-being through experiential learning of various therapeutic modalities, and (3) current clinical applications of integrative medicine from practitioners and patients. Topics include: integrative East-West Medicine and its role in prevention and health cultivation; herbs and nutritional supplements; pain management using acupuncture, acupressure, massage and other self-help techniques; as well as maintaining a healthy immune system and reducing inflammation and stress. Hands-on practice and clinical site visits will be incorporated.
This course is open to students of all levels in universities and colleges. Healthcare professionals interested in expanding their career to integrative medicine will also benefit from this course. International students are welcome to enroll.
In Summer 2014, the course will be offered during Summer Session A from June 24 – July 31, Tuesdays and Thursday 9:00-11:30AM. Early enrollment begins March 2014!

Although PSYCTRY 175, PSYCTRY 182, and MED 180 may each be taken separately, these three courses are interrelated and can be taken together as a cohesive curriculum. For those who take all three of them, special attention will be given to interaction among the three courses. For more details, please click here.
