The OICC is formally part of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM). As a stand-alone centre operating in Ottawa, the OICC provides a work environment characterized by a small team working to provide excellent support to medical practitioners and patients. Excellence in customer service and fostering a healing environment in this setting is critical to the delivery of good care.

This role will also involve the identification of potential patients for clinical trials and coordinate with the research coordinator to consent the patient. As a member of the integrated health professional team, the person will participate in team building and work collaboratively through team meetings, quality education, inter-referrals, shared medical records etc.

Voices of Support

“For far too long, disciplines have worked in isolation without communication and our patients have often felt caught between differing therapeutic philosophies, often to their detriment. This is a wonderful initiative. An integrative program will help provide a much needed bridge.”
