Health Professions Partial Academic Pathway to Certification for Students
Faculty members who teach in health professions master’s and doctoral programs can help their students achieve certification in lifestyle medicine by applying for a course waiver with ACLM. By demonstrating that a lifestyle medicine course taught at the university level includes a minimum of 22 core competencies, ACLM will provide a certificate of waiver equal to the 10 hours of requisit in-person education to sit for the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine Certification Exam to students who successfully complete an ACLM approved course.
Health professions programs eligible for this opportunity include nursing, physicians associate, nurse practitioner, dietitian, occupational therapy, physical therapy, public health, and others. If you have a program that you’d like to have considered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
