Message from the President
Welcome to the Florida College of Integrative Medicine (FCIM).
staff and students take great pride in the FCIM environment. In addition
to leadership in integrative medicine education and an advanced on-site
clinic, there is great camaraderie among students — study groups,
gatherings and building friendships —and a strong rapport between students and staff. Administrative staff and faculty are
always approachable for discussions and questions.
FCIM is a dynamic and progressive school for integrative medicine.
Our curriculum places emphasis on Oriental medicine technologies and
clinical practices, along with Western biomedical sciences to support
proper patient treatment and integration of these methodologies within
the overall health care delivery system. Students receive supervised
hands-on training with required time for observing private treatment
and working on case studies.
The clinic is one of the largest teaching clinics and one of the
most diverse in Orlando. Most of the Chinese and American doctors
at the clinic offer at least 20 years of experience in the field of
integrative medicine, many of which manage their own private practices
and teach at FCIM. Supported by this exceptional leadership and training,
our FCIM graduate students are more prepared to pass
the board exam for a license recognized by the federal and state government.
We believe integrative medicine is the future of medicine
as more is learned about the management of whole body healing. American
consumers are demanding the availability of integration of medicine
in the medical main stream, with 50% of the current health care market
focused on alternative health care, and its usage is still on the
rise, especially with acupuncture, herbology, Tui-Na (Chinese medical
massage), and yoga. The marriage of four thousand years of Oriental
medicine and cutting-edge technology is the greatest connection to
modern Western health care, and our students are leading the way.
We are expecting more dramatic developments in this field in the next
I am confident that your educational experience at
FCIM will be rewarding. With us, you will lay a foundation for a successful
medical career. Join us in bringing whole body medical treatment practices
to the forefront with integrative medicine!
Larry L. Han, President
