The Georgetown Difference
We are committed to the highest quality of education, access to resources, and personalized career advice, providing a transformative experience that will launch you on a path toward personal and professional growth.
To educate a new generation of open-minded health care providers and scientists prepared to apply the knowledge and skills of complementary and integrative medicine with objectivity and rigor.
Our goal is to train students interested in private and public sector careers related to complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) research, education, and healthcare by providing them with a rigorous educational program that incorporates a firm foundation in biomedical science, in-depth exposure to CIM disciplines, and practice in critical thinking and evidence-based evaluation CIM modalities.
Why a graduate degree in Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences?
The Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences (IMHS) Master’s Program encourages students to dig deeper into the mechanistic basis for complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) therapies such as acupuncture, massage, functional/integrative nutrition, herbs and supplements, and mind-body interactions. The program’s emphasis on multi-disciplinary and evidence-based approaches is designed to provide future healthcare providers, educators, and researchers with holistic understanding of the interaction between medicine and the human body.
The demand for well-informed and properly trained health care providers and scientists within the CIM field has grown out of the intense consumer-driven interest in CIM, and the increasing integration of CIM modalities into clinical practice. The IMHS Program is the only one in the nation that offers such an innovative approach, placing Georgetown University at the forefront of graduate education in CIM.
