This is a 6 week rotation broken into 2 three week sections. During this rotation residents spend 4 half days a week in their ambulatory care clinic. The rest of the week is spent learning about lifestyle medicine, meeting with system leaders, and learning about transitions of care.
The lifestyle management component focuses on the 6 pillars of lifestyle management that are so important to our patients and ourselves: nutrition, sleep, exercise, social support, decreasing toxin intake, and dealing with stress. It is a combination of online learning and working with experts in the field.
