Integrative Oncology Scholars Program

This U of M Program trains 100 integrative oncology (IO) leaders over 4 years and facilitates partnerships between IO leaders and complementary practitioners within their communities.

The Integrative Oncology Scholars Program from the University of Michigan is funded by a National Cancer Institute R25 grant. It has the joint goals of training 100 integrative oncology (IO) leaders over 4 years and facilitating partnerships between IO leaders and complementary practitioners within their communities. Eligible participants, who are designated as IOS, include a multidisciplinary selection of physicians, physician assistants, nurses, psychologists, social workers, physical or occupational therapists, and pharmacists, who are actively engaged in clinical oncology practice. IOS instructors are experts in the field of IO and/or adult education and reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the program with professions as diverse as patient advocates to oncology clinicians.

Designed for the full spectrum of oncology care professionals, the program equips oncologists, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and psychologists with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide safe and evidence-based integration of complementary therapies in conventional oncology care.

Registration is now open for the Integrative Oncology Scholars Program. Applications are due January 10, 2020.
