This program provides physicians with a basic understanding of integrative oncology. This includes a discussion of the pathophysiology of cancer, mainstream treatment, and side effects associated with cancer treatments for breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate cancer, as well as lymphoma, leukemia, and other cancer diagnoses.
This course pays particular attention to the physical and psychological issues that cancer patients face. We discuss herb-drug interactions, nutrition, physical activity, and relevant legal and safety issues.
Physicians leave this course with the knowledge and skills to:
- Operationalize integrative medicine concepts
- Assess efficacy of complementary medicine modalities
- Apply integrative oncology theory and modalities in clinical and academic practice
