Pathway Video

Salutations! Are you interested in learning nontraditional practices to help your patients? Want to have an evidence-based answer for those tricky questions about supplements and diet? Have a curiosity about mind-body medicine techniques?

Integrative Medicine focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and blends Western medicine with traditional healing techniques. If you’re interested in learning more, this pathway might be right for you!

Curriculum

The Integrative Medicine Pathway focuses on exploring a holistic approach to patient care. Residents explore the evidence surrounding various traditional healing techniques and how they blend into Western medicine. The pathway features quarterly, interactive didactics in which they learn general principles of integrative medicine as well as disease-specific treatments. Topics include integrative approaches to pain management, physician well-being, nutrition, vitamins, supplements, mind-body tools, and more! Time will be carved out within electives for this curriculum and balanced with on-site trainings.

In addition to the two-year curriculum, each resident also works on a scholarly project. Through these projects, our residents are able to delve deeper into topics of interest. They work with the faculty mentor and chief resident to develop a teaching session where they can educate other residents on their topics of study.

Clinical Experiences are integrated into elective rotations & include:

  • Healing Touch
  • Acupuncture
  • Oncology Nutrition
  • Integrative Consults 
  • Cooking for Health
  • Nutrition & Supplements
  • Biofeedback 

Currently residents in the program have shared their excitement for integrative medicine with the community, creating podcasts, cookbooks, and instagram sites to spread their knowledge and passion!
