Funding: NIH R25 Grant
Abstract: In 2007 NCNM was awarded a research education grant (R25) from National Institutes of Health – National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (now National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health). The focus of the grant was to introduce research literacy and evidence-based medicine (EBM) into the NCNM curricula. The first four years emphasized evidence-based teaching initiatives within the classroom setting. In 2011 the grant was renewed for an additional four years. The second four years focused on evidence-based practice in clinical education.
