Connecting practitioners together to learn and grow in integrative modalities.
ACIMconnect.com was established in 2008 by Dr. Cowden and a board of dedicated practitioners to help practitioners come together to learn integrative modalities. The name “Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine” was chosen because there were many universities in the USA who had recently opened a department of integrative medicine, usually consisting of one or two practitioners performing fewer that four integrative treatment modalities collectively. From the beginning ACIM planned to teach ALL integrative testing and treatment modalities that had evidence of being effective and relatively safe for patient care (thus “Comprehensive” in the name). ACIM was very focused on connecting practitioners who wanted to learn these integrative modalities with practitioners who had already mastered those modalities. ACIM also wanted to connect patients who were seeking certain integrative modalities with practitioners who were skilled in those modalities.
