Curricula & Resources

Universities fully recognize the power and need to add behavior, nutrition and lifestyle interventions to coursework for future clinicians. This is never more evident than by the number who are currently adapting ACLM resources to their programs.  Faculty are embracing the transformation of medical education, but don’t have the time and resources to develop curricula from scratch. ACLM offers fully packaged, easy-to-implement resources across the entire education continuum for bachelor’s to fellowship programs. Access includes the LM 101 Curriculum, Culinary Medicine, LMEd Curriculum from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville, a medical school question bank, and the Lifestyle Medicine Residency Curriculum. As an added bonus the teaching and learning that occurs in each classroom and clinic solves for personal as well as future patient health restoration.

Academic Map 01

A full directory of leading academic institutions and programs that acknowledge the critical need for lifestyle medicine is now available. These institutions  actively incorporate lifestyle medicine through various levels of implementation including: requiring lifestyle medicine implementation in the core curriculum, offering elective lifestyle medicine courses, or by creating and implementing student-led Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups (LMIGs) on campus.


Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups (LMIGs) are organizations that address the growing need for lifestyle medicine at the academic and health systems level.

LMIG leaders host events informed by evidence-based lifestyle medicine to support healthy habits for trainees, staff, and the local community. With exclusive benefits and support from ACLM, LMIGs have been established across the country and have been instrumental in advocating for curriculum reform within many health professional training programs.

Our members are health professionals who treat, reverse, and prevent chronic disease through lifestyle change.
