Behavioral Medicine Program
Directed by Dr. Sarah Kinsinger, the Behavioral Medicine Program within the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has one of the only fully integrated clinical GI programs in the country.
The overarching goal of our program is to deeply understand and positively change through our research, clinical practice and training of professionals how health beliefs, attitudes and behaviors affect medical care in individuals with chronic gastrointestinal conditions. We place a strong emphasis on patient engagement and make an effort to provide a voice for patients and families through our research focus and clinical practice.
Housed within the Division of Gastroenterology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern¹s Gastrointestinal Behavioral Medicine Program has 3 complementary branches: The Health Psychology Service, The Medical Nutrition Service and the Training Institute.
The Health Psychology Service is beneficial for patients with a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions, including those with poorly understood symptoms which have not responded to standard medical interventions.
The Medical Nutrition Services complement the health psychology services by helping patients obtain symptom relief through nutritional changes.
The Training Institute is designed to provide consultation and training to psychologists, physicians and other health professionals interested in managing the psychosocial aspects of digestive diseases.
