Course Description

Healthcare professionals are uniquely positioned to stem the tide of chronic disease through patient education. In order to be effective, clinicians must understand the vital roles exercise, nutrition, sleep, social connectivity, health behavior change, tobacco cessation and responsible alcohol use and other lifestyle interventions play in preventing, treating, and managing disease. Through training, clinicians will be poised to treat and prevent the current pandemic of chronic disease and reduce unsustainable healthcare costs.

The course is aimed at students who already have an understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the human body. The course will consist of biomedical and clinical science presentations and small group discussion of exercises, and relevant activities. Topics covered include chronic disease prevention, treatment, and reversal of disease through lifestyle behaviors, and the tools needed to counsel patients on healthy behavior change. Additional topics include self-care and resiliency for the medical student.


Participants must pass the final exam with a grade of at least 60 (D) to receive academic credit for the course.
