    Our Mission Statement

    To inspire medical students and allopathic physicians to integrate effective CAM modalities into their practice in order to better serve each individual patient.

    What is CAM?

    Complementary and Alternative Medicine is a phrase that suggests allopathic medical practitioners can incorporate non-allopathic (alternative) modalities in order to create a holistic (complementary) practice that will support and promote individual health

    What are the Goals of IMIG?

    • Educate ourselves and our peers on various CAM modalities through guest speakers, student presentations, and workshops
    • Develop new ways of integrating CAM into Iowa’s medical curriculum
    • Promote growth of the organization
    • Create a sustainable organizational structure
    • Spread awareness of and enthusiasm for CAM
    • Support and encourage members in their educational and personal pursuit of a career in integrative medicine

    To live long, live slowly. -Cicero

    The wider and freer a man's general education, the better practitioner he is likely to be.
    -Sir William Osler

    By health I mean the power to live a full, adult, living, breathing life in close contact with...the earth and the wonders thereof...-Katherine Mansfield

    Of one thing I am certain, the body is not the measure of healing- peace is the measure.
