Memorial Sloan Kettering offers programs for patients, caregivers, and professionals that present a broad range of information about complementary medicine as well as the issues surrounding so-called alternative medicine. Our programs include discussions about herbs and other over-the-counter remedies, herb-drug interactions, and toxicities associated with purported therapies not scientifically proven to be effective against cancer.
We also offer training programs for licensed massage therapists, reflexologists, and acupuncturists, as well as for family members who desire to learn how to provide safe and gentle massage to patients.
For the healthcare professional, we offer visiting professorships and graduate student internships. For more information about these programs, please email IntegMedTraining@mskcc.org.
