The consultative fellowship track is designed to equip fellows with an in-depth working knowledge in the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and how this can be applied in an outpatient consultative practice. TCM principles are imparted to fellows during weekly didactic sessions that cover foundations of TCM and TCM internal medicine as well as other special topics. These sessions, in addition to a robust clinical experience, allow MD and DO fellowship graduates to combine Western Medicine and TCM principles effectively and independently without any prior knowledge of TCM.
Graduates from this track leave with a distinctive area of expertise in an area of their interest. For example, this has included Integrative East-West approaches to patients with ENT, autoimmune conditions and managing inpatient / high utilizer patient populations. We have a diverse array of clinical and research faculty to help mentor our fellow in their preferred focus.
Consultative-track fellows will spend the majority of their clinical time seeing outpatients who are referred to our practice for the management of debilitating illnesses that are otherwise not optimally treated using the current medical model. Graduates will also be trained to work in conjunction with acupuncturists and manual therapists, and on completion of the fellowship, will be poised to establish a successful integrative medicine consultative practice.
