The Lifestyle Medicine Residency Curriculum (LMRC)

The Lifestyle Medicine Residency Curriculum (LMRC) is a comprehensive, applicable, and flexible curriculum designed for integrated implementation into medical residency programs. Driven by resident involvement, the curriculum has included residents in every aspect of its creation. The educational component includes 40 hours of didactic material along with 60 hours of application activities designed to be completed over a 1-3 year time period. The practicum component enables residents to clearly demonstrate ongoing exposure to and use of the principles of lifestyle medicine in the clinical setting with patients. Upon completion of both the educational and practicum components of the curriculum, residents qualify to sit for the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine certification exam.
