Our program opens up opportunities to improve the health of those you serve. Upon completion, you’ll be prepared to pursue board certification in lifestyle medicine — or explore fulfilling careers as a lifestyle medicine specialist.

A Typical Day

Your typical day starts at 8 a.m. in the clinic or at another rotation site. In addition to lifestyle medicine learning, teaching and practicing, you will continue the clinical skills you learned in your primary residency. Fellows usually enjoy a 30-60 minute lunch break and end the work day around 5 p.m. 

For the most part, you’ll work Monday through Friday. Throughout the fellowship there are occasional evening and weekend hours required (but no overnight call).

Resident Life

As a fellow, you’ll enjoy the benefits of LLU student life while taking on the role of junior faculty in the Department of Preventive Medicine. Our fellows are given the professional and personal support needed to stay healthy physically, mentally and spiritually.

Moonlighting is permitted with advance permission of the program director.
