Integrative Medicine: There are fellowships in integrative medicine, but they're not completely online. They generally involve a mixture of online education and live, residential sessions several times throughout the course of the fellowship. Dr. Andrew weil's fellowship in integrative medicine at university of arizona is a very good program. http://integrativemedicine.arizona.edu/education/fellowship/.
