Integrative Medicine Club
The Integrative Medicine Club is meant to enhance our veterinary education by focusing on alternative therapies including but not limited to acupuncture, chiropractic, nutrition, and rehab. This club will provide students with information & opportunities to explore and pursue holistic modalities for an integrative approach to animal wellness.
Principle activities, events, or programs:
Our group’s events include lunch-and-learn lecture meetings, dinner meetings, and wet labs. These events cover a range of topics including acupuncture, integrative and rehabilitative medicine, chiropractic care, Chinese medicine, home cooking, essential oils, laser therapy, and much more!
How this group’s activities benefit the profession, university, and community:
Our mission is to empower emerging veterinarians with knowledge and access to alternative medicine resources in order to best serve the diverse needs of our patients. We also believe it is important for new veterinarians to be familiar with the field of holistic medicine as many clients are asking about these healing modalities. We provide Auburn’s veterinary students with accurate information and opportunities to explore this integrative approach to veterinary medicine.
How to get involved with this group:
Integrative Medicine Club is open to all students at the College of Veterinary Medicine. An interest meeting is held at the beginning of each semester and dues are collected. Dues include membership for the Integrative Medicine Club and come with many benefits including AHVMA membership, as well as several scholarship and externship opportunities.
