The Holistic Medicine Track will include:
Additional training related to motivational interviewing and eliciting change behavior, with the goal of better connecting with and empowering patients for lasting behavior change
Developing skills to cultivate a therapeutic patient-doctor relationship
Evidence-based education on complementary therapies not otherwise covered in conventional medical training to be used in conjunction with the conventional medicine approach
Experiences to equip physicians with tools that address challenging-to-treat functional and psychosomatic conditions--conditions that often do not respond to conventional interventions
Tools and experiences to promote personal wellness through resiliency training, burnout prevention and self-reflection, to promote longevity in their personal and professional lives
The track will have a standard curriculum that includes evidence-based didactics and online learning modules, completed over the course of residency. Additional experiential requirements will be focused on the resident’s chosen area of focus. There will be a monthly meeting to explore the wide-variety of topics related to taking a holistic approach to patient care.
