A Paradigm Shift

The cost of health care, at its current rate, will soon become unsustainable. The paradigm by which we approach and treat many health conditions needs to change. In addition to treating chronic illness, we want to promote chronic wellness. The importance of nutrition and lifestyle change is not only vital in the treatment of chronic illness, but also for the promotion of general health. To that end, a Lifestyle Medicine Program and Curriculum will be incorporated into all three years of your residency training such that you will be able to become certified and sit for the certification exam in Lifestyle Medicine. Included in this curriculum are focused conferences on nutrition as well as the opportunity to participate in a lifestyle medicine ambulatory experience.
