The Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine defines integrative medicine as “a system of comprehensive care that emphasizes wellness and healing of the whole person, with special emphasis on patient participation, and attention to mental and spiritual health. The knowledge and use of complementary and alternative medicine is an important aspect of integrative medicine.”

In 2005, Wake Forest Baptist was one of the first 35 academic health centers in North America to be accepted into the Consortium.

Today, the Center oversees a collaboration of educational, community outreach, and research activities focusing on wellness and healing, including acupuncture, the arts, music, and the environment, communication and counseling skills, dietary supplements and herbal medicine, Healing Touch, massage therapy, mind-body, music, nutrition, stress management, tai chi and qi gong and yoga.
