The Institute for Functional Medicine and Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. ...

Western Michigan University's medical school is teaming up with a Washington state nonprofit to offer a new residency program for doctors of medicine in Battle Creek, Mich., the AP reports.

The Institute for Functional Medicine, which trains doctors in the use of functional medicine, says the new program is the first of its kind in the US.

According to a press release, interest in learning about functional medicine has more than doubled among medical students and residents over the past few years.

"By learning functional medicine curriculum alongside academic programming, residents are better equipped to care for their patients with a functional medicine lens, increasing their overall confidence and competence as practitioners and improving patient outcomes," says Robert Luby, MD, director of medical education initiatives for the IFM.

The new residency program will offer residents the opportunity to learn about functional medicine, which the press release says "plays important roles in patient care" by looking for root causes of problems and treating them "with evidence-based, clinically verified methods."

The IFM says it's working with the medical school to offer more functional medicine training to medical students and residents in other academic programs.

The new program is set to begin in July 2023. Read the Entire Article
