About

As a truly unique graduate degree program, in the Physiology - Complementary and Alternative Medicine program from Georgetown University we work with students who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare but also eager to learn an exceptional skill set combining science, CAM, and evidence. 

Overview

Our students in the Physiology - Complementary and Alternative Medicine program from Georgetown University strive to explore the science-based evidence of the most used complementary and integrative medicine modalities used in the United States.

The demand for well-informed and properly trained health care providers and scientists was triggered by the intense consumer-driven interest in CAM, and the increasing clinical integration of various CAM modalities. The CAM Program is the only one in the nation that offers such an innovative approach to studying CAM, which places Georgetown University at the forefront of graduate education in this field.
