• Compare theoretical mechanisms biomedical researchers use to explain the observed health effects of selected INTM interventions
• Assess the standards of evidence conventional clinicians and researchers use to evaluate the effectiveness of clinical interventions.
• Evaluate the challenges and prospects of creating an integrative clinical model, in which the “best” of conventional and INTM medicine are seamlessly combined.
