One advantage of blogging is that I can sometimes tap into the knowledge of my readers to help me out. Some of you may recall a little something I created a couple of years ago known as the Academic Woo Aggregator. Basically, it was a list of medical schools and academic medical centers in the U.S. and Canada with departments or divisions of “integrative medicine” that promote what has been termed “quackademic medicine.”
Unfortunately, I’ve been very remiss in updating it. The last update was in May 2008. I think it’s long past due for an update. I haven’t decided whether I will post such an update here or at my other blog (or both), but in preparing the update, I hereby for your help. Please peruse the previous roll of shame. Then either post here in the comments or e-mail to me any examples of quackademic medical programs in the U.S. and Canada (I’ll leave Europe to others better qualified to deal with it) that I may have missed. Equally important, if there are programs I listed before that no longer peddle woo, let me know that too, so that I can investigate and decide if I should remove the program from my list.
Please help me make the Academic Woo Aggregator the definitive list of academic programs in the U.S. and Canada that have adopted quackademic medicine.
