Social Movements and the Transformation of American Health Care

Michael S. Goldstein

Oxford University Press

Goldstein describes how the prior personal experiences—political, physical, and emotional—of individual physicians were instrumental in the introduction of complementary and integrative medicine into medical school facilities and curricula. He applies parallel arguments to past research on patient‐driven movements, which has emphasized the effects of personal experiences on involvement and leadership for those at risk for or affected by a particular condition or disease in the study of professionally driven movements. From eight of the medical schools currently belonging to the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine (CAHCIM), fourteen individuals, including five deans and nine other integrative medicine advocates, attended a key organizational meeting during the summer of 1999. Goldstein interviews a number of these participants about the extent to which attendees conceptualized their actions at the time of the meeting as part of a social movement and the degree to which personal experiences of participants were significant factors in their participation. The chapter findings indicate that most participants were conscious of being part of a social movement and recalled this as quite important. Additionally, many respondents reported self‐perceptions as “wounded healers” and saw movement participation as a means to address this status.
