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 thier academic or health institution.

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.
