The Ohio State University Family Medicine Fellowship in Integrative Medicine is a one-year program designed to train physicians in evidence-based therapies and associated philosophies collectively known as Integrative Medicine. Our program combines education, clinical mentorship, and hands-on training and practice with faculty who use evidence-based Integrative Medicine in our clinic and at our world-renowned academic medical center. The goal of the program is to provide physicians with a wide range of knowledge and skills needed to be successful practitioners in the field of Integrative Medicine as well as future leaders in healthcare organizations, academic medical centers, government and industry.
Ohio State Integrative Medicine will facilitate this training process through the guidance of the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABoIM) and with specific training goals, learning objectives and activities facilitated by our expert faculty across a one-year calendar.
