Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine with Dr. Peter D’Adamo
In the fall of 2009, Dr. Peter D’Adamo, the New York Times best-selling author of the Eat Right for Your Type books, joined with the UB Clinics to create a Personalized Medicine shift based on his many years of research in genomics, generative medicine and individualized patient care.
What began as a single clinic shift has grown to now include a three-course curriculum in biochemical individuality and generative medicine for the naturopathic medical students and a Center of Excellence in Generative Medicine that will incorporate research, education, and advanced clinical training for students and graduates.
Blending cutting-edge research with the foundational principles of naturopathy, such as “let food be your medicine,” will make up the cornerstone for this practice.
The Personalized Medicine shift accepts patients from all over the world, allowing greater access to a world-renowned physician such as Dr. D’Adamo, while allowing students to gain first-hand experience in assessing patient bio-individuality and prescribing therapies that focus on nutrition and lifestyle interventions.
Clinical Education in Multiple Areas
The program of study, grounded in naturopathic philosophy, is continually evolving to meet the demands of a changing medical landscape.
The UBCNM clinical education curriculum includes specialty teaching shifts in the following areas;
- Functional Medicine
- Mind-Body Medicine
- Personalized/Generative Medicine
- Women’s Health
With a new clinic on the horizon, UBCNM can ensure that its graduates are the healthcare leaders in the cutting edge medicine of the 21st century.
