The IFM Fellowship is a 12-month fellowship for family medicine physicians interested in pursuing post-residency training in the clinical practice of integrative medicine. The fellowship provides core clinical training for family physicians working to successfully care for diverse populations of patients. The fellowship trains physicians to skillfully integrate the best of conventional and alternative medicine, and to assume leadership roles in the emerging field of integrative medicine.

The U-M Integrative Fellowship Program was developed with a generous grant from the Fannie E. Rippel Foundation.
