Membership. Education. Fellowship.
The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) is a global, interprofessional, member organization that educates and trains clinicians in integrative health and medicine to assure exemplary health care. The AIHM’s training incorporates evidence-informed research, emphasizes person-centered care and embraces global healing traditions. By combining science and compassion, the AIHM is transforming health care.
The core areas of focus of the Academy are Membership (Individuals, Organizations, Chapters), Education (E-Learning, Conferences, Publications) and the Interprofessional Fellowship Program.
AIHM’s mission is to educate health professionals in all healing traditions. Through the education and engagement, we empower health professionals with the knowledge to deliver true, comprehensive person-centered care.
Integrative medicine is a practice 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 professions to achieve optimal health and healing.
AIHM builds on the experience of its longstanding predecessor organizations, the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM) and the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA). In 2015, AIHM launched the Interprofessional Fellowship in Integrative Health & Medicine.
The Academy supports a vibrant community of practitioners and health seekers. There is a lot of love felt at every level. We are collaborative, spirited, and motivated by our shared mission. We hope that you will join us!
