Students for Integrative Medicine (SIM, formerly NCAM) 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 that is characterized not only by the elimination of disease, but by interprofessionalism, health promotion, prevention, and person-oriented care.
