What is an ACLM Trainee?

Medical students, health professional students, residents, and fellows make up the ACLM Trainee community. As future healthcare professionals, Trainees are uniquely positioned to transform the healthcare system – starting with their own education. In order to advocate for a transformed health care system, trainees have the opportunity to start Lifestyle Medicine Interest Groups (LMIG) at their academic or health institution.

Contact about how to get involved in ACLM Trainee opportunities.

The establishment of LMIGs cultivates multi-institutional, trainee-initiated programming that supports healthy habits for students, faculty, professionals as well as the local community. ACLM’s Trainees have started LMIGs across the country that have been instrumental in advocating for curriculum reform and contributing to research in the field. Becoming an ACLM Trainee member also supports Trainees in the pursuit of furthering their education in lifestyle medicine and working towards certification in the field.
