White Mountain Institute (WMI) is organized as a 501©(3) nonprofit private foundation dedicated to raising and distributing funds to support creative endeavors that bring together leaders in the arts and medicine throughout the world. The Institute’s purpose in offering Continuing Medical Education (CME) is to provide high quality educational content related to new therapies, diagnostic procedures, emerging technologies, and the latest consensus opinions on clinical management of patients with both acute and chronic pain while incorporating the impact of various art forms on health and wellness (i.e., diet and exercise).
Participants in White Mountain Institute sponsored CME programs will come from across the United States and the international community to learn through formal lectures and discussion, informal group discussion, and social activities designed to encourage personal interaction with other program participants and their guests. At the conclusion of the program, attendees will leave with new information to enhance their practice based on knowledge obtained from current scientific research (e.g., peer-reviewed medical literature), the acquisition of new skills and techniques regarding alternative therapies (e.g., electroanalgesia, massage) and the arts (e.g., painting, sculpture), and the opportunity to learn from respected colleagues from around the country and the world.
Our Board of Directors includes internationally known physicians, nurses, and artists. All have distinguished themselves in their field.
An unmet need in traditional Western medical practices has been the role of so-called alternative therapies, including the role of art in the healing process. The provider applicant is an internationally renown physician investigator who has given in excess of 600 lectures both domestically and internationally during his more than thirty years in academic medicine. He has recruited outstanding colleagues from both the academic and private practice medical community, as well as leaders in the art community. This unique blend of talent should lend itself to creating educational programs that not only meet the ACCME requirements, but, more importantly, meet currently unmet needs for programs to address the needs of patients suffering with various pain syndromes.
