B006 Introducing the Concepts of Lifestyle Medicine Competencies in Residency

Ruben Hernandez Mondragon, MD

05/6/17 7:15 AM - 8:15 AM Harbor Ballroom

During the round table discussion we will describe the lifestyle medicine competencies for primary care created by the American College of Preventive Medicine including: leadership, knowledge, assessment skills, management skills and use of office and community support and how it has been introduced in our longitudinal residency curriculum with a series of workshops focused on nutrition, fitness, and wellness in collaboration with fitness instructors, certified nutritionists, and behavioral science providers. The round table session will create an environment to stimulate conversation of all participants on different ways to introduce these concepts into residency training.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the lifestyle medicine competencies for primary care physicians.
  2. Create program initiatives on how to introduce the concepts of lifestyle modification into the residency curriculum as well as potential collaborators.
  3. Discuss evaluation tools applicable to healthy lifestyle training.
