Welcome to the Evanston Clinic of Integrative Medicine!
My name is Inna Melnikov, founder of the clinic. I hold a Master's Degree of Science of Oriental Medicine, am a Licensed Acupuncturist, and have been a practitioner of Integrative Medicine for 28 years.
I started practicing Integrative Medicine in 1988 at one of the large outpatient hospital clinics in Moscow, Russia. While working there, I traveled with a group of doctors to practice Integrative Medicine in the Caucasus mountain region, Northern Russia, and Siberia. For my achievements in developing and implementation of Integrative Medicine in Russia, I was awarded membership in the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1991. It was formative time for me, and I learned a lot. More learning followed when I moved to the United States in 1992.
I studied Western Medical Sciences at the National University of Health Sciences, and Eastern Medical Sciences at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. After many years working in private practice, I felt that I'd like to share my knowledge. As a faculty member of Northwestern University and a clinic supervisor at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, I got the chance to do that. I spent seven years working at PCOM, and later returned to my alma-mater, the National University of Health Sciences, to teach postgraduate programs. Now, I enjoy the best of both worlds by teaching my postgraduate and medical students throughout the United States, and treating my patients with Acupuncture and Chinese Pharmaceutical Herbs. In January of 2019, I started my doctoral studies at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and anticipate to graduate in 2020.
There's also a third side. I also play violin, guitar, sing, write and record music. I love jogging along the lake front in Evanston, swimming during the summer time, and sailing with the Northwestern University Sailing Center during the summer. I write about Chicago Architecture and music at America Illustrated Magazine. I am the wife of an architect. In the world of serious people, I am known for my advocacy for the health policy change and fighting for environmental health and eliminating environmental hazards at home. Eastern Philosophy and practice of Oriental Medicine are important parts of my life. I owe a lot to my family, mentors, teachers, colleagues, patients, and friends for sharing with me the love for what I do. I am looking forward to the opportunities to give it back. Thank you, and love to all!
