The goal of this program announcement is to increase the quality and quantity of the
research content in the curricula at complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)
institutions in the United States where CAM practitioners are trained. This
initiative is not designed to directly train researchers, but rather to enhance CAM
practitioners exposure to, understanding of, and appreciation of the evidenced-based
biomedical research literature and approaches to advancing scientific knowledge.

CAM professional schools responding to this program announcement must partner in the
development and implementation of their program with a research-intensive
institution, such as a university, medical, dental or nursing school, or other type
of health professional school.

For the purpose of this specific program announcement a CAM institution is defined as
a U.S. domestic nationally or regionally fully accredited academic, health care or
research institution with a primary goal of training students to be CAM
practitioners. Only schools that offer a doctoral degree in a designated CAM practice
that is licensed or certified at the state level will be eligible to submit an
application in response to this announcement. Some examples of eligible institutions
include but are not limited to colleges/schools of naturopathy, chiropractic, and
traditional Chinese medicine. NCCAM recognizes that a number of accredited CAM
professional schools that train students in specific CAM therapies do not require a
doctoral degree as the terminal degree to practice. While this program announcement
is limited to schools offering doctoral degrees, it is anticipated that the
experienced gained from this initiative will provide data that will inform the
incorporation of research education at CAM institutions offering other types of
terminal degrees and certificates.
