LIFESTYLE MEDICINE CURRICULUM PILOT








ACPM in conjunction with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) is currently developing a 30 hour CME curriculum in lifestyle medicine and has begun piloting various modules of the curriculum via webinar. This curriculum may be used as part of a program that will eventually provide formal lifestyle medicine training and to create general lifestyle medicine competence among physicians.

Participate and Provide Feedback on the Curriculum

The first webinar that occurred on July 7th piloted our nutrition curriculum and solicited the largest participation level in ACPM history! Thanks to all members who participated and provided valuable feedback.

This webinar was the first in a series that will occur between July – October 2014. Webinars will potentially cover topics related to nutrition, weight management, physical activity, tobacco, alcohol, emotional wellness, mindfulness based stress reduction, sleep, and the importance and role of lifestyle medicine in clinical care.

To get involved or learn more about ACPM lifestyle medicine projects and initiatives, please contact Dani Pere, Associate Executive Director for Programs and Operations at dpere@acpm.org.

ACPM and Lifestyle Medicine

ACPM has been actively exploring the scientific basis, best practices, and need for education in lifestyle medicine, including behavioral change, risk reduction, and the prevention and treatment of disease through lifestyle approaches.  Lifestyle medicine is a core competency of preventive medicine, and to that end ACPM plays an important role in ensuring that lifestyle medicine programs are based on proven and effective methods of preventing and controlling disease.  We are uniquely positioned to bring value and meaningful health improvement in the national struggle against rising health care costs and illness burdens through a synergistic combination of clinical and population-based prevention approaches to lifestyle issues.


CME/MOC Credit is no longer available for these webinars.

ACPM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. ACPM designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 Category 1 credits toward the American Medical Association (AMA) Physician's Recognition Award (PRA)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
