Overview

The Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program was founded in July 2001 as a program within the Department of Medicine at Mayo Clinic. The Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program was specifically created to help address the ever increasing patient interest in wellness-promoting activities that have not typically been part of conventional medical care.

The vision of the program is to:

  • Continually identify and rigorously examine the expanding realm of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, using a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative approach.
  • Present, publish and disseminate reliable information regarding Complementary and Integrative Medicine using public and professional outlets.
  • Ensure that Mayo Clinic continues to meet the comprehensive needs of our patients with respect to the body, mind, and spirit.
