Integrative Care Shifts at the UB Clinics

If you are interested in having a holistic assessment and preventive care visit, the University of Bridgeport’s (UB) integrative care at its UB clinics offers a chance to have a health assessment by a team of student interns, supervised by licensed providers from the college’s teaching clinics, to devise the plan that best meets your needs.

During an assessment visit on Monday mornings, student interns will review your health status, including medical history, screening exam, spine, and posture or gait analysis by a team of supervised interns from UB’s naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture/Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and dental hygiene programs. There will be a 24-hour diet recall, and a review of supplements and prescription medications. A TCM health assessment (including tongue and pulse diagnosis), a head and neck assessment, and oral health screening are all included in the visit. 

After this initial assessment, your student interns will create a specific care plan. Following that visit, clinic staff will set up the appropriate appointments designed to help you meet your health goals. These may include meeting with student interns to review all health findings and receive preventive health education information. Patients will receive nutritional counseling and a list of potential medication interactions; prescribed therapeutic exercises, nutritional, botanical or homeopathic supplements; and a dental assessment and/or dental cleaning can be part of the individualized treatment plan. Acupuncture or chiropractic care may also be recommended.

All student interns are supervised by UB’s licensed clinicians. There is no cost for the assessment visit. Regular fees apply for all recommended treatments and supplements.
