University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB Health) Integrative and Behavioral Medicine Fellowship is now accepting applications!

We believe that Integrative Medicine and Behavioral Medicine pair synergistically in fostering wellness and delivering a patient-centered integrative approach to care. The overarching goal of our fellowship is to produce physicians who are knowledgeable of the bio-psycho-social dynamics that affect wellness, have skills to elucidate patient's values, desires, and health goals, and are equipped to approach patient care from a holistic and patient-centered perspective. They will learn to utilize integrative and behavioral modalities to serve as healers and advisers to patients and to become leaders in their community and within the medical profession.
