The mission of the Maryland Society of Integrative Medicine (MSIM) is to support the use of responsible, safe and effective integrative medical practice by physicians, dentists and other health care providers, and to enhance the public’s access to such practice, in the State of Maryland.
In support of our mission, MSIM:
- Promote a regulatory environment within the State that enhances access for patients to safe and effective integrative medicine
- Provide education and networking for health professionals practicing integrative medicine
- Provide education to the public regarding integrative medicine practices
The Patient’s Access to Integrative Health Care Act of 2020
The Patient’s Access to Integrative Health Care Act of 2020, created and supported by our Society, passed both the Maryland House and Senate unanimously and was enacted into law effective July 1 of 2020. By enjoining health occupations boards and disciplinary panels from taking action against health care practitioners solely on the basis of their use of integrative diagnostic and treatment methods, this legislation enhances the ability of physicians and other health care professionals to use such methods and patients to have access to them.
