Objective: Nowadays, many individuals in the community apply complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for treatment purposes, protective purposes as well as culturally traditional purposes. It is necessary that the physicians who are primarily responsible for the prevention of human health, should be substantially practitioners of traditional and complementary medicine as well as modern medicine. We aimed to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of medical faculty students about CAM practices in this study. Therefore study is planned to contribute to the organising of CAM in the curriculum of medical education.
