Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    AMA supports more CAM education for doctors and medical students

    The American Medical Association (AMA) has adopted a resolution that promotes education of medical doctors and medical students on the “benefits, risks, and efficacy” of CAM.

    This action came in response to a resolution from the Student Section of the AMA, which urged more CAM education in both medical schools and through continuing medical education.

    This resolution differs from earlier AMA resolutions regarding CAM in 1994, and 1997. It acknowledges potential “benefits” from CAM. Earlier AMA resolutions were at best neutral and more typically negative in tone.
