    • Circulation control needed

    • Desire to share information on PIM philosophy and methods with larger campus community

  • Elements of PIM/AHSL Partnership

  • AHSL to catalog PIM materials using NLM classification & medical subject headings (MeSH), integrating into shelf list order with all AHSL materials

  • AHSL to process these materials (labels, etc.)

  • PIM to keep its collection at its facility

  • Books to be represented in AHSL online catalog (ALOE)

  • Cataloging of PIM books to be integrated into AHSL workflow

  • The University of Arizona Program in Integrative Medicine (PIM)

  • Founded by Dr. Andrew Weil in 1994 with the following ideals:

    • Patient/Practitioner partnership in the healing process

    • Integration of conventional & alternative methods to facilitate the body's innate healing response

    • Consideration of all factors that influence wellness & disease

    • Inquiry driven & open to new paradigms

  • Education and Research

    • 1997, two year postdoctoral fellowships to educate physicians to use of the best of complementary and conventional therapies

    • Since then, the program has expanded to include:

      • Research fellowship for pre- and post-doctoral students

      • Distance learning program

      • One one-month rotations for visiting medical students and residents

  • The PIM Library provides an important resource for PIM Students, faculty and staff, as well as for many other university programs
