There are three rows of individuals who are the CAM Class of 2019 students standing in front of the Medical-Dental building at Georgetown University.

Welcome Class of 2020!

The CAM program is designed to train students to objectively assess the safety and efficacy of various complementary and alternative medicine modalities and introduce scientific rigor into understanding the mechanistic basis for CAM therapies such as acupuncture, massage, herbs and supplements, and mind-body interactions.

As a truly unique graduate degree program, the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Program (CAM) works with students interested in pursuing careers in healthcare but also eager to learn an exceptional skill set combining science, CAM, and evidence. These are the three fundamental pillars of the program. Our students strive to explore the science-based evidence of the most used complementary and integrative medicine modalities used in the United States.

The demand for well-informed and properly trained health care providers and scientists was triggered by the intense consumer-driven interest in CAM, and the increasing clinical integration of various CAM modalities. The CAM Program is the only one in the nation that offers such an innovative approach to studying CAM, which places Georgetown University at the forefront of graduate education in this field.
