The Center for Integrative Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine aims to expand knowledge of integrative medicine through research and educational opportunities.

Integrative medicine is evidence-based, relationship-centered care, that promotes optimal health. It’s a system of comprehensive care that emphasizes wellness and healing of the whole person, with special emphasis on patient and family participation, and attention to mental and spiritual health.

The knowledge and use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an important aspect of integrative medicine, which uses the best of both conventional and complementary strategies to attain patients' health goals.
