What is the integrative approach?

Integrative Medicine is an approach to care that emphasizes the wholeness of a person's needs, including our physical, psychological, nutritional, emotional well-being. It is fundamentally patient-centered and seeks to find dynamic and personalized solutions to the health problems our patients are faced with. Taking this approach, we work with patients from the “inside out,” individualizing each person's care. This holistic approach is able to successfully treat many patients suffering from a variety of symptoms and diagnoses.

Integrative Psychiatry incorporates this approach into the realm of psychiatric wellness. Understanding that each of us is biochemically unique -- requiring different levels of vitamins and minerals for optimal function -- we know that these biochemical differences affect our brains, our moods, and subsequent behaviors. While Integrative Psychiatry doesn't ignore the possible role of medication in recovery, we also focus our attention on the nutritional and metabolic abnormalities that may be solved with evidence-based non-pharmaceutical interventions.

Choosing Psychiatry Redefined

Why choose a fellowship over an online course or conference?

With a growing need for pharmaceutical alternatives in psychiatry, there are hundreds of educational opportunities dedicated to the study of nutritional intervention and functional medicine available. Having more opportunities isn't always a benefit to clinicians, as much of the information is conflicting, focused primarily on lab testing, and difficult to sort through.

This fellowship is instead designed to establish a rich functional understanding of Integrative Medicine and how it can be applied directly to a psychiatric practice.

The goal of this fellowship is to train clinicians to practice Integrative Psychiatry in a thoughtful, evidence-based manner. Drawing on Dr. Greenblatt's 30+ years of experience, this fellowship offers ample time for case consultations, one-on-one mentorship, and network building, opening the doorway to a psychiatric practice that is focused on helping patients in a compassionate and individualized way.

By the end of this fellowship, participants will be competent in treating patients through the holistic lens of biochemical individuality and Integrative Medicine.

FREE Introductory Online Seminar

    Chief Medical Officer

    A pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, James M. Greenblatt, MD, has treated patients since 1988. After receiving his medical degree and completing his psychiatry residency at George Washington University, Dr. Greenblatt completed a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School. Dr. Greenblatt currently serves as the Chief Medical Officer at Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, MA and serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine and Dartmouth College Geisel School of Medicine. An acknowledged integrative medicine expert, educator, and author, Dr. Greenblatt has lectured internationally on the scientific evidence for nutritional interventions in psychiatry and mental illness. Through three decades of practice and research, Dr. Greenblatt has been a leading contributor to the revolution of patients and families seeking individualized care and offers evidence-based approaches toward nuanced and integrative recovery. In April of 2017, Dr. Greenblatt was inducted into the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame by the International Society of Orthomolecular Medicine, which has recognized significant contributors to science and medicine who operate from the perspective of biochemical individuality and nutrition-based therapies since 2004. Dr. Greenblatt shares this honor with recognized founders in the field of integrative medicine, beginning with the pioneers of nutritional psychiatry Abram Hoffer, Linus Pauling, and Roger Williams. His book series, Psychiatry Redefined, draws on his many years of experience and expertise in integrative medicine for psychiatry. Dr. Greenblatt’s knowledge in the areas of biology, genetics, psychology, and nutrition as they interact in the treatment of mental illness has made him a highly sought-after speaker at national and international conferences and workshops. He currently offers online courses for professionals as well as specialized fellowship programs in the functional medicine approaches to integrative psychiatry.

FAQ

  • When does the fellowship begin?

    The fellowship begins January 2019. Pre-recorded lectures are available for 12 months. All group and one-on-one meetings will take place between January and December 2019.

  • Are there scholarships available?

  • Can I move at my own pace?

    This fellowship is designed to be flexible and individualized to suit the clinicians own practice, so fellows are encouraged to move through the material at a pace that best suits them. However, keeping in mind that meetings take place in the first half of the year, fellows are encouraged to work through the material before supervised group meetings occur.

  • Why choose a fellowship over workshops and CE courses near me?

    The purpose of this fellowship is to provide focused attention on integrative practices that can be directly applied to one's own clinical setting, with the support of peer case sharing and individual mentorship. This fellowship is much more than an educational workshop: it is a comprehensive, thorough application of Integrative Psychiatry methods based on Integrative Medicine research and Dr. Greenblatt's 30+ years of experience.
