A NEW PARADIGM
The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM) vision is to unite the many voices in integrative health into an organization that provides a platform to build bridges between professions, offers credible evidence-based educational pathways for licensed healthcare providers, advocate for systems change and build leadership capacity for the next generation of caregivers.
AIHM is leading a global community of integrative healthcare professionals committed to that new paradigm. Collectively we are transforming the fractionalized disease-care model into a holistic, sustainable, person-centered model. Body, mind, spirit, community, planet.
As we know, healthcare is in a state of crisis around the world. Trillions are spent on the global healthcare sector globally – the majority of which is spent to manage preventable chronic diseases. Both the global pharmaceutical industry and the health insurance industry are multi-billion dollar industries. More recently, the global pandemic, climate change challenges, and inequities in healthcare are creating even more stress on this sick-care system.
As a clinician, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated. Many health professionals are burning out. We need to support each other and what we need now more than ever, is to establish a new paradigm that truly focuses on health and well-being and that will takes us from sick care to health care.
Healthcare transformation will require unprecedented changes to our thinking, our actions, health professional education, fee for service payment systems, and delivery of care. We need more than just a new paradigm of thinking. We need action – we need a global movement that assures health care for all, provides collaborative, team-based, patient centered care that truly focuses on creating health and well-being.
Critical to the transformation of healthcare is educating doctors and clinicians in evidence-based integrative health. Through courses, conferences and our Integrative Health & Medicine Fellowship, AIHM provides both beginner and advanced pathways to gain that critical knowledge.
AIHM is creating leadership opportunities to engage leaders to transform healthcare. CEOs and Executive Directors can join a growing global network of leaders that are strategizing together to create long-lasting sustainable change and growth for the integrative health community globally. Students can join a student leadership council.
AIHM supports a wide variety of advocacy efforts and like-minded organizations that are all working towards creating person-centered integrative health for all. Within AIHM, special interest groups (SIGS), allow individual members to work on a variety of clinical and social issues that impact health, and advocate in their area of expertise.
