SIM at UCLA / David Geffen IMSIG / UCLA CEWM

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.

The David Geffen Integrative Medicine Student Interest Group (IMSIG) provides a forum for medical students to learn, challenge, explore, share, and experience Integrative Medicine through sponsorship of speakers, practical workshops, and discussions. IMSIG hopes to provide medical students with a unique capacity to effect positive, healing transformations in all aspects of patients’ lives while also realizing the motto, “Physician, heal thyself.”
