To enable the ongoing development of its members and to prepare for back-to-school learning, AAIM is seeking submissions of continuing education courses and journal articles

July 19, 2010, Springfield, MO – The American Association of Integrative Medicine, the medical society for the 21st century, has announced a call for continuing education courses and journal articles for fall/winter, so as to further develop its educational offering for integrative medicine practitioners worldwide. Any practitioner of integrative medicine or alternative medicine can submit educational materials and enjoy the notoriety that comes with having their contributions be part of the world’s largest association devoted entirely to integrative medicine. 

Accepted articles will appear in the organization’s flagship, quarterly print publication, the Journal of the American Association of Integrative Medicine (JAAIM). The journal is a forum for integrative medicine professionals containing articles, research, opinion pieces and news created by AAIM members and nonmembers. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts between 500 and 3,500 words on subjects such as new techniques, therapies, products or services, practice management and fascinating cases. 

The organization is also seeking continuing education (CE) courses consisting of an outline, abstract, learning objectives, PowerPoint slides and a final quiz. AAIM CE courses enable members to learn something new and add to their practice of integrative medicine while receiving CE credits.

“The summer slowdown is an ideal time for health professionals to work on building their credentials,” said Dr. Zhaoming Chen, chief spokesman and executive board chairman for AAIM. “Submitting either an article or course to AAIM is a great way to do that.”
