Is there a space for alternatives in med school?


Should teaching complementary medicine be added to the already overcrowded medical school curriculum?

I’m guessing the answer will be a firm ‘no’ from those who say there’s no such thing as alternative medicine (only medicine that works, right?).

But now there’s a push from those in the academic sector of complementary medicine for integrating their subject into the medical school curriculum.
