Welcome

Australia is a great country packed with fabulous nature and world-leading complementary medicine research. Now we even get to share this with you and can’t wait to see you all down-under in Brisbane between 7th and 10th May 2019.

We are looking forward to the gathering of researchers and clinicians from all over the world involved in complementary and integrative medicine. This event is the International Congress on Complementary Medicine Research and is the pre-eminent annual research event for the field convened by Endeavour College of Natural Health in association with the International Society for Complementary Medicine Research and leading research institutions around Australia.

Australasia is home to an enthusiastic and committed community of complementary medicine researchers, who as regular participants of ICCMR meetings have enjoyed the hospitality of our colleagues in Europe, Asia, and North America for years. It therefore gives me great pleasure to extend a formal invitation on behalf of the complementary medicine researchers in Australia and New Zealand and welcome you to the ICCMR0219 in the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in Brisbane, Australia.

The theme of the conference is Pathways and Partnerships and in line with this we are creating an event that explores, showcases and facilitates collaboration and communication across disciplines and between researchers and clinicians.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, Australia’s Sunshine State. It is a beautiful subtropical city, close to ancient rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef, and a short hop from the outback and desert. It also has a thriving practice and research community across many areas of complementary medicine which adds to our rich and diverse research activities.

Endeavour College of Natural Health, the University of Technology Sydney and the other collected universities hosting ICCMR2019 are home to numerous complementary medicine researchers contributing advancements to complementary medicine methodology, practice and policy in Australia and internationally.

Come and connect with nature at the beginning of the world, share new ideas with colleagues, make new friends and go home smelling of koala!
