  • Medical Students as a Key Partner in the Co-creation of Evidence-Based Lifestyle Medicine Medical School Education
    Presenter: Edward M. Phillips, MD
    Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at 2pm EDT

    Synopsis: The second webinar in our series showcased the critical involvement of medical students in Lifestyle Medicine Education. Each year, students have pointed to a lack of lifestyle medicine knowledge due to a gap in the traditional curriculum. Particularly there is a lack of content surrounding topics such as physical activity, nutrition and behavior-change strategies, despite a call by students indicating that the inclusion of this knowledge skills are an important component of medical education. Specifically, this webinar focused on incorporating students at all levels of curriculum integration – from student interest groups to fully incorporated classroom based education. We discussed the need for four essential components necessary to implement a Lifestyle Medicine from a student perspective including: A Champion Mentor, Interested Students, Recognition from the Medical School, and Creating a Lifestyle Medicine Syllabus. We are grateful to the Ardmore Foundation, Physician’s Committee on Responsible Medicine, American Council on Exercise, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and many others for their support and expertise.

  • The Lifestyle Medicine Education Collaborative Partners with AAMC’s MedEdPORTAL to Provide Evidence-Based Lifestyle Medicine Curricular Resources
    Presenter: Jennifer L.Trilk, PhD
    Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 2pm EDT

    Synposis: In our final webinar, we highlighted LMEd’s partnership with the AAMC’s publishing suite, MedEdPORTAL Publications (www.mededportal.org). MedEdPORTAL maintains a rigorous peer review process based on standards used in the scholarly publishing community. Each submission is scrutinized by editorial staff and independent reviewers using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of scholarship. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted publication. MedEdPORTAL publications are considered by many to be scholarly works that may support faculty advancement decisions. The AAMC manages a database of trained, content expert reviewers, puts forth a call for submissions to all medical schools, tracks submissions through the publication process and supports an Associate Editor for the collection. As such, the Lifestyle Medicine Collection curated and housed at MedEdPORTAL will include material vetted by Lifestyle Medicine content-expert reviewers and an Associate Editor that will guarantee the collection to be of the utmost quality of material for educators to use in teaching. Finally, as MedEdPORTAL is an international publication of peer-reviewed curricula and resources, authors who develop evidence-based, Lifestyle Medicine material are encouraged to submit to the collection. In summary, by distributing high-quality curriculum and incentivizing faculty, this collaboration will “raise the bar” of making available, evidence-based LM medical education for medical schools to utilize. We are grateful to the Ardmore Foundation, Physician’s Committee on Responsible Medicine, American Council on Exercise, American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and many others for their support and expertise.
