Complementary Therapies Course


Description

This elective will consist of lunch-time presentations and discussions on various aspects of Alternative and Complementary Therapies.

Each topic will be allotted one hour, and will be presented by community practitioners and moderated by Tulane faculty.  Presentations will be offered at noon beginning in early January and ending mid spring.

Any student is welcome to attend the talks, but must attend 8 out of 10 sessions to receive credit for the elective.  A sign-in sheet will be available at each presentation.

The presentations will be open to all students, whether they wish to receive elective credit or not, and will be advertised in advance.

Relevant articles and power-point presentations will be posted on MyTulane.

 

Goals and Objectives:

For each therapy presented, students should be familiar with the techniques utilized, theoretical orientation or belief system, the history and cultural context of the therapy, diseases and/or problems for which it is used, potential areas for conflict or collaboration with Western medicine.
