Certification in Lifestyle Medicine (Board Certification)
now available in the UK.
As pre-requisites for writing the Exam, you are required to complete:
- 30 hours of online learning. The recommended learning for this the is LMBRC through ACLM at $499 (non CME is sufficient)
- 10 hours of in-person learning. We plan to hold our next annual conference in Sep 2022 in London. If you’re signed up to the Diploma you will qualify for the members rate which will be confirmed later in the year.
- Submission of a Case Study. This is more of a reflective piece and can be done on a patient, friend/family member, even yourself but highlights your understanding and implementation of the lifestyle changes implemented
BSLM is now offering members the opportunity to obtain certification from the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine (IBLM).
Certification can be undertaken from a clinical or public health perspective. Certification demonstrates your commitment to, and expertise in, Lifestyle Medicine, augmenting your clinical or public health practice with a solid grounding in preventing, managing and reversing chronic and lifestyle-related disease.
Watch the videos below to better understand the reasons for certification and the importance of having an internationally-recognised and consistent standard for Lifestyle Medicine professionals.
We are now accepting new applications for the 2022 diploma. Application form below.
It is not compulsory to become a member of the BSLM to sign up for the diploma although of course we are grateful for the support of the charity should you wish to do so.
