Endeavour supports research as a process which facilitates the creation of new complementary and integrative medicine knowledge, and draws on research to inform curriculum content, design and development as well as organisational policy. We recognise research which honours the roots of complementary and integrative medicine in all of its forms not only aligns with our own organisational values, but also the values of the students who choose to study with Endeavour and the attributes of our graduates. Through robust and rigorous research, the true value of complementary and integrative medicine within contemporary healthcare, and as a result the ongoing viability of the professions our graduates will enter into can be realised.
Endeavour is an institution with diverse activities and aspirations however these all centre on supporting and promoting exceptional health practitioners through delivering the highest standards in education and training.
Research is an important part of this commitment and the Office of Research at Endeavour is responsible for bringing these aspirations to fruition. The Office of Research vision is to disseminate and critically examine all aspects of contemporary complementary medicine practice through the application of non-partisan, rigorous, and robust empirical research.
