School Selection Criteria

Consider the following when looking for integrative medicine schools:

  • Since some programs prepare students for entry-level careers, while others are designed to supplement healthcare positions in related fields, students should consider their career goals before enrolling.
  • Prospective students should make sure the school lists its program as evidence-based in order to ensure scientific rigor.
  • Students may want to choose a nationally accredited school if they plan on becoming alternative medicine practitioners or would like to complement their current or as-yet-unearned healthcare degree with a certificate or degree in integrative medicine.

Students who wish to integrate alternative healing methods into traditional practices may pursue programs ranging from undergraduate certificates to doctoral degrees at a number of colleges and universities around the country.
