Updates in Integrative Medicine and Health 2017

Kalahari Resort & Convention Center, Wisconsin Dells, WI

11/9/2017 - 11/11/2017



The explosive growth of Integrative Medicine has brought both opportunities and challenges to patients and consumers. Patients are confronted with a bewildering and growing array of promises and claims. This presents a unique challenge to physicians and other health care professionals tasked with helping their patients make informed health care decisions. Researchers and clinicians from Mayo Clinic offer this course to provide learners with a general working knowledge of Integrative Medicine; familiarity with some of the most common therapies; and most importantly, practical application of these therapies to patients with relevant diseases and conditions.


  • Evidence-based, up-to-date information on integrative approaches including mind-body medicine, wellness, acupuncture, massage therapy, dietary supplements
  • Practical applications of therapies to patients with relevant diseases and conditions
  • Promoting overall health and wellness for your patients
  • Increase provider resiliency and reduce provider burn-out


This course is designed for practicing physicians, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other members of the health care team who work with patients using or interested in using integrative medicine therapies.
