Students at the UA College of Medicine now have a new option for specialization in their medical education: studying with one of the most well-known alternative-medicine proponents in the world, Dr. Andrew Weil:

The University of Arizona’s College of Medicine announced Wednesday that it is starting a new track for medical students who want to focus on integrative medicine – healing that takes into account the mind, body and spirit.

The special area of focus, which will be taught in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil’s Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, is one of just three distinction tracks at the UA College of Medicine. The other two are global health and medical student research.
