Med, nursing schools teaching alternative remedies

Associated Press, November 2, 2009

Future doctors and nurses are learning about alternative medicine along with anatomy and physiology at a growing number of medical schools, the Associated Press reports. The government has spent more than $22 million to help medical and nursing schools start teaching about alternative medicine. Additional tax money has been spent to recruit and train young doctors to do research in this field, launching some into careers as alternative medicine providers.
