“It is only by working together, in a spirit of mutual respect and collaboration, that we can start to build an integrative model of care, which may be our best hope for changing the trajectory of the health of our people and our planet.”

About the AIHM Fellowship
A Bold New Paradigm
Under the guidance of Founding Director Tieraona Low Dog, MD, a team of expert integrative clinicians has created the first ever graduate-level training program designed for clinicians across a wide range of professions. From day one, you will find yourself immersed in an innovative, interactive, clinically focused curriculum designed to enable you to quickly put into practice what you are learning. You will gain a new perspective on integrative models of care while working side-by-side with clinicians and faculty from a diverse group of professions.
The AIHM Fellowship is a two-year hybrid model that allows you to continue to live and work in your current location. The Fellowship utilizes a virtual classroom with media-rich training, discussion groups, streamed videos and an interactive web-based curriculum. The program incorporates clinical rotations, in-person retreats and numerous elective modules, allowing you to customize your training in accordance with your professional interests.
Learning will naturally occur as you…
- Engage with dynamic, clinically relevant online content
- Participate in discussion forums with your peers and faculty
- Experience deepening community through sharing and residential retreats
- Learn about the strengths and challenges of other professions
- Release the need to know everything all the time
- Experience and apply the techniques you are learning
- Critically evaluate the results in your own patients/clients/community
- Immerse yourself in integrative clinical experiences

During the Fellowship Program, there are three weeklong Residential Retreats in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The Retreats are a foundational aspect of our program and provide Fellows with the opportunity to meet and connect with classmates, faculty and staff. Each retreat is filled with engaging classes, hands-on workshops, self-care opportunities, delicious meals and reinvigorating quality time together. Fellows bond with one another as they broaden their vision and deepen their knowledge of integrative health and medicine in a truly collaborative and supportive environment.
