How Should Alternative Medicine Be Taught to Medical Students and Physicians?
Marcus, Donald M.
Academic Medicine, v76 n3 p224-29 Mar 2001
Analyzes alleged deficiencies in medical education and concludes they are based on misrepresentations (for example, that physicians ignore mind-body interactions). Examines fundamental differences between traditional and alternative medicine and asserts that physicians need additional education in order to provide guidance to patients, but that teaching about alternative medicine should be evidence-based, not a transmission of unproven practices.
