Students for Integrative Medicine (formerly SIM)

Students for Integrative Medicine (SIM) is a student group at UCLA that strives to raise student awareness for evidence-based, integrative, and whole-person approaches to medicine and health. The healthcare paradigm we support is one which is characterized not only by the elimination of disease, but by interprofessionalism, health promotion, prevention, and person-oriented care. SIM encourages students to be aware our current medical system, methods of self-care, and healing ideologies, and to learn from those across cultures. We also provide a forum to learn, experience, share and explore topics in Integrative Medicine (IM) such as nutrition, mind-body medicine, research, and healthcare. We aim to build a community of students interested in these topics and to connect them with networks of professionals in their respective fields. *In Fall 2013, we changed our name from Nutrition, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine (NCAM) to Students for Integrative Medicine (SIM). We believe that the term "Integrative Medicine" better captures the essence of our organization's motivations. In our changing times, it is important to foster not only an exploration of various healing traditions, but also to promote the development of an integrative paradigm of healthcare
