The Integrative Family Medicine (IFM) program at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine is now open to new residency programs and new specialties.

The Integrative Family Medicine (IFM) program at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine is now open to new residency programs and new specialties. Initiated in 2003, IFM developed a method for residents in family medicine to receive a comprehensive training in Integrative Medicine. Piloted as a track at six sites around the US, it is a four-year model, which combines a 1000 hour fellowship in integrative medicine with conventional family medicine residency training. The success of the pilot has lead to the decision to open up the program. Interested faculty from family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, OB/GYN, psychiatry, and emergency medicine residency programs may apply. Requirements include a faculty mentor in integrative medicine, 8 hours per week protected time for resident to complete fellowship requirements, 4th year salary for fellow, and tuition fees.
