Redefine healthcare

As the nation’s only medical professional association representing the interdisciplinary field of lifestyle medicine, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine represents a galvanized force for change; members are united in their dedication to identify and eradicate the root causes of chronic disease, with the clinical outcome goal of health restoration.  ACLM closes the gap in evidence-based education in lifestyle medicine across the spectrum of pre- and post-professional training.  Along with training and support of its members in their individual practices, ACLM advocates lifestyle medicine as the first and optimal whole-person treatment option for all people, mitigating much of the non-communicable, chronic disease epidemic.

Featured Continuing Education Offerings

Foundations of Lifestyle Medicine Board Review

An evidence-based course designed to provide a review and successfully prepare candidates for the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine (ABLM) Certification Exam.



Most physicians and health professionals receive little to no education on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, social connectivity, and the avoidance of risky substance use which are the six pillars of Lifestyle Medicine. 

Certification in Lifestyle Medicine indicates that the individual has mastered the science of  preventing, treating, and reversing chronic disease in an evidence-based manner with official acknowledgement from the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine (for physicians and specialists) or the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (for professionals and practitioners).
