WHAT IS THE EDUCATION FOUNDATION? The ACAM Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
The Foundation was chartered on September 21, 2005, with the purpose of
advancing integrative medicine through education and advocacy. Support
for the organization comes by means of charitable donations from
individuals, corporations, as well as volunteer efforts. The income from
these endowments is used to support the creation and dissemination of
educational resources, professional development for physicians and
licensed health care providers, public awareness, and other programs
that enhance integrative medicine education.
The American College for Advancement in Medicine's Education Foundation seeks to educate and empower practitioners, patients, and the general public about complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine (CAIM). The foundation seeks to:
Provide assistance for public programs and group forums that champion patient rights through education, information, and access to CAIM therapies
Provide educational scholarships for medical students from accredited medical schools seeking to enhance their scope of study with programs and seminars in complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine
MISSION STATEMENT: To

medicine education as a means to reduce or eliminate poor health

ACAM Educational Foundation relies on the generous support of
individuals, corporations, and charitable trusts to support its vision.
