The International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM) is a not-for-profit medical organization that seeks to combine the best of conventional medicine with the latest in preventative, alternative, and innovative treatments.
Our members are physicians who are comfortable treating health concerns relating to circulation, the brain, the immune system, hormones, digestion, pain, and/or toxicity. We are health professionals who are interested in utilizing more than just drugs or surgical procedures in the holistic care of our patients.
ICIM strives to raise the standard of medical care by incorporating various disciplines from professional societies throughout the United States and the world. We provide training for physicians in chelation therapy, reconstructive prolotherapy, allergy treatments, nutritional IV’s, cancer support, and other progressive therapies.
Through our biennial conferences and advanced-level trainings, we seek to fulfill our mission of providing physicians with a comprehensive understanding of integrative medical care.
What Makes ICIM Special?
In 1983, 7 forward-thinking physicians met in Cleveland, Ohio for what would later be known as the first meeting of the International College of Integrative Medicine. Since that time, we have expanded beyond this region to include members from all over the country… and all over the world! Even through this expansion, we remain a close community of dedicated scientists. With around 150 members, our conferences feel more like a welcoming family reunion than a meeting.
The quality of education we provide maintains a balance of evidence-based theory and practical advice. This means that you will be equipped to apply the scientific information that you learn in your office on Monday morning. In addition to our biennial meetings, we encourage year-round discussion and consultation. Many of our members have been experts in the field for many years and are ready to share their rich experiences.
ICIM comes to the aid of our members who face prosecution for practicing controversial integrative medicine. In addition to emotional and financial support, we offer expert witnesses, “Friend of the Court” statements, and our innovative ICIM Physicians’ Risk Analysis Program, in which members can receive immediateadvice from experienced peers at no charge.
Our group leads the industry in advanced training for Heavy Metal Toxicology and Chelation Therapy. Since no doctor can achieve excellence alone, we commit to hosting comprehensive training and certification for IV Infusionist staff working in chelation therapy. No other organizations offer this service.
