The purposes of the Integrative Medicine Program (IMP) grants are to: (1) incorporate evidence-based integrative medicine content into existing preventive medicine residency programs; (2) provide faculty development to improve clinical teaching in both preventive and evidence-based integrative medicine; and (3) facilitate delivery of related information that will be measured through competency development and assessment of the residents.
Eligible entities for the IMP grants must be a graduate medical education program in preventive medicine at: (1) an accredited school of public health or school of medicine or osteopathic medicine; (2) an accredited public or private nonprofit hospital; (3) a State, local, or tribal health department; or (4) a consortium of two or more entities described in items (1) through (3). All graduate medical education programs (residencies) must be accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or approved by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). Consortia applications for the IMP grants must be submitted by the accredited preventive medicine residency (PMR) program responsible for carrying out the project.
