Integrative Medicine Fellowship
The purpose of the Integrative Medicine Fellowship at the University of Michigan is to produce leaders in the field of Integrative Medicine who excel in clinical practice. The fellowship is woven into the 3-year University of Michigan Family Medicine Residency Program.  The Integrative Medicine Fellowship is scheduled one month during each of the three years, which allows time to learn about and experience various modalities, interact with Integrative Medicine physicians and alternative providers, focus on self-care, and develop an integrative approach to caring for patients. Fellows also undertake twelve additional months of training beyond the three-year residency period to develop an individualized approach to the clinical practice of Integrative Medicine.

The Integrative Medicine Fellowship provides core clinical training for family physicians working to successfully care for diverse populations of patients. The fellowship trains physicians to skillfully integrate the best of conventional and alternative medicine while preparing each fellow for a leadership role in the emerging field of Integrative Medicine.
