The Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at The University of Arizona, in collaboration with the leading experts, has developed the first online psychiatric integrative medicine curriculum, designed to embed integrative medicine education into psychiatric residency and fellowship training. The curriculum and resources are updated on a regular basis to reflect the ever-growing evidence that supports this field.
This curriculum offers psychiatric residents topics not typically included in conventional medical education including nutrition, dietary supplements, mind-body medicine, and environmental health.
The landscape of mental health care is changing. A number of diseases are often not fully addressed with solely conventional medicine treatments. Patients are increasingly demanding whole-person approaches for prevention and treatment of psychiatric conditions.
