Preventive Medicine Residency with Integrative Health Care Training Program: This announcement solicits applications for the Preventive Medicine Residency with Integrative Health Care Training Program.  The broad goal of the program is to improve the health of communities by increasing the number and quality of preventive medicine physicians who can address public health needs, advance preventive medicine practices, increase access to integrative health care, [1] and increase the integration of these two fields into preventive medicine training and practice. Program Requirements: Applicants must propose programs to: 1.      Increase the number of preventive medicine residents and/or improve training for these residents.  The applicant must include a plan for evaluating any improvements in the educational program, such as the effect of the interventions on the knowledge, skills, and practices of the residents.  2.      Incorporate evidence-based integrative health care curricula into accredited preventive medicine residency programs; AND 3.      Provide interprofessional training of their preventive medicine residents including training in preventive medicine and integrative health care for other primary care or community-based health care trainees or providers in addition to preventive medicine residents. Awardees shall use funds to: ·         Plan, develop (including the development of curricula), operate, or participate in an accredited residency or internship program in preventive medicine or public health; ·         Defray the costs of practicum experiences, as required in preventive medicine programs; and ·         Establish, maintain or improve academic administrative units (including departments, divisions, or other appropriate units) in preventive medicine, and public health; or programs that improve clinical teaching in preventive medicine and public health.  Operation of residency or internship programs may include support for resident tuition, fees, travel, stipends, and other expenses, infrastructure, and a faculty development program and activities.  Trainee support may be provided for a maximum of 24 months, which includes the academic year and the practicum year.  For the three-year project period, different cohorts of residents may be funded for a 24 month period.  Examples of other trainee costs that can be supported include tuition for the master’s degree in public health or other master’s degree related to the preventive medicine specialty, fees, and travel to professional meetings.  Examples of faculty development activities that may be supported include the participation of the project director and/or key faculty and preceptors in professional development opportunities to meet the purposes of the project.  Examples include attendance at conferences, workshops, and seminars for continuing education and a longer term structured learning opportunity that may or may not lead to certification to increase faculty knowledge and skills in meeting the requirements of the project. New residency programs, without accreditation, can request up to $150,000 for the first year of the grant to plan and develop a residency program.  New programs must provide proof of accreditation by the end of the first year of support in order to continue to receive grant funds and to receive support for trainee costs. [1] Institute of Medicine, Integrative Medicine and the Health of the Public:  Summary of the February 2009 Summit.  Harvey Fineberg’s 5 dimensions of integrative medicine included:  health care that 1) embraces the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual factors; 2) encompasses a full spectrum of health interventions including approaches to prevention, to treatment, to rehabilitation, and to recovery; 3) emphasizes coordination of care across an array of caregivers and institutions; 4) is patient-centered; and 5) is open to multiple modalities of care, not just ‘usual care,” but also unconventional care that helps patients manage, maintain, and restore health.
