Dr. Jacobson completed his Medical Degree at the University of Alberta in 1999, and then completed his residency in Family Medicine with special competency in Emergency Medicine at McGill University, finishing his training in 2002. He is a Board Certified member of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine, and is a Faculty Lecturer at McGill University.
He has been practicing Emergency Medicine since 2002 in a variety of settings- from remote northern communities, to busy urban trauma centres. He was most recently on staff at Santa Cabrini Hospital in Montreal. By 2008, realizing that the skills he learned and developed to treat acute illness did not fully address the complex nature of chronic disease, he sought out further education and training, and has been practicing Integrative Medicine since 2010 at The Montreal Centre for Integrative Medicine.
He currently uses a functional medicine approach to address root causes of chronic illness, and relies heavily on mind-body medicine and nutritional interventions to restore health. He is a certified Yoga instructor, who endeavors to bring mindfulness into his daily life and to each patient encounter. He is thrilled to be joining the team at P3 health, and to continue promoting Integrative Medicine in his new hometown.
