HMR #68: Teaching Integrative Medicine

Dr Zieve looks into the current state of integrative medicine in medical schools with Dr Tanya Edwards of the Cleveland Clinic and the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, exploring the expansion of professional interest in and acceptance of alternative disciplines.

For ten years Tanya Edwards MD has taught courses on complementary and alternative medicine at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where she established the Area of Concentration for Alternative Medicine. For the past year she has been active in integrating complementary medical education into the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. As a family physician Dr Edwards sees patients at the Cleveland Clinic Independence Family Health Center. She provides integrative medicine consultations at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Integrative Medicine, which opened in 2004. She was recently elected Chair of the board of Mind Body Spirit Connected, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to educating Northeast Ohioans about integrative medicine.
