Integrative Medicine Track
Integrative Medicine (IM) is a holistic, patient-centered approach to medicine that strongly emphasizes a collaborative patient-practitioner partnership. It addresses all aspects of a patient’s health, including physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. It utilizes any appropriate and evidence-informed modalities and therapies that may contribute to a patient’s healing and achieving optimal wellness.
The USF-MPM Family Medicine Residency is the first and only Family Medicine residency in Florida to offer IM training through the University of Arizona’s Integrative Medicine in Residency program. This track is offered to PGY-2 and PGY-3 residents. Residents work through a competency-based, interactive, online curriculum at their own pace, getting additional training and advancing their skills in topics like:
- Vitamins, minerals, and common supplements
- Mind-Body techniques and tools
- Introduction to Functional Medicine
- Integrative Pediatric and Women’s Health
Integrative approaches to chronic disease
- Manual medicine
- Energy Medicine
- Integrative Approaches to Pain Management
Residents and IM faculty also meet regularly throughout the year to discuss topics and participate in group activities like acupuncture, Reiki, and yoga.
