Abstract

Teachers of primary care have been interested in how complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is taught in the United States. This is a report on a workshop entitled “Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Content, Process, and Pedagogical Issues” at the 35th Annual Spring Conference of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. Workshop participants shared basic knowledge about terminology, categories, and the present status of CAM education. Participants also discussed “The Dream: Integrative Physician” and emphasized the importance of evidence-based medicine and attitudes embracing CAM.
