A one-day 2003 Interclerkship course introduced Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and was designed to enhance the knowledge, attitude, and skills of third year medical students. Students experienced a wide array of CAM modalities, interacted with CAM practitioners and learned the state of the art of evidence based CAM.
