Faculty scholars are expected to attend 11 full-day sessions throughout the course of the academic calendar year. The sessions are typically held on the 2nd or 3rd Friday of the month, from September through June. Participants receive a binder of materials containing reading and resource information.
Between monthly sessions, scholars are expected to complete assigned reading and to work on designing an individual curriculum, research or clinical service application project of their own passion related to integrative health. Scholars will be mentored on these projects by integrative medicine program faculty.
Projects can consist of one of the following:
- an educational module/course complete with learning resources, activities, research evidence, etc
- a specific educational application in the curriculum of the school or department in which the candidate works
- a clinical service or research proposal that can be submitted for internal or external funding
- a pilot research project to empirically examine educational, clinical or science applications to integrative health issues
