The Center for Integrative Medicine at University of Colorado Hospital

The Center for Integrative Medicine (TCFIM) at UCH offers physician-managed care that emphasizes the wellness and healing of the entire person. 

A Collaborative Care Team

The professional practitioners at TCFIM will partner with each other, your other health care providers at UCH (physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other members of your health care team), and any outside providers to help you get the most out of both Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and conventional care.

In addition to providing guidance on the incorporation of CAM therapies with conventional care, we also provide the specialty care within the UCH system for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. 

Please call (720) 848-1090 to request an appointment.

About Integrative Medicine

Acupuncture patient at The Center for Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is the blending of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies with conventional care for the prevention and treatment of health conditions. 

 

The correct “balance” of CAM and conventional treatment is individualized, taking into account not only the medical condition but also the person – treatment that is appropriate for one person isn’t necessarily right for the next person with the same condition.

Complementary Cancer Support Funding

Thanks to generous donations and fund raising efforts, TCFIM is often able to offer some of our CAM therapies at no cost to patients undergoing active cancer treatments.  While our program can only enroll a limited number of patients at one time, we encourage you to apply if you are in active treatment and we will let you know if we have funds available.
