To the Editor: As president of the American Chiropractic Association and a plaintiff in the Wilk v AMA [American Medical Association] lawsuit,1 I was delighted to read about the number of US medical schools offering courses that introduce students to the various forms of alternative therapies2 and teach them to work with patients who need or want to be treated by alternative health care providers.
