TEACH-INS WITH CLINICAL AND INDUSTRY EXPERTS

A CHANCE TO BUILD YOUR FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE COMMUNITY

“It’s amazing to have this ‘window’ into an established Functional Medicine clinic. There isn’t anything else quite like this available for new Functional Medicine practitioners to see and experience how Functional Medicine theory gets translated into practice. Invaluable.”

Mary Beth Charno, RN, MSN, APRN-C

Bridge the gap between Functional Medicine theory and practice

 

THE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CLINIC IMMERSION™ OFFERS:

Because of our experience and connections within the Functional Medicine community, we host experienced clinicians, industry experts and other thought leaders in additional monthly webinar Teach-Ins. This community is an essential component of our learning process.

As examples: We have had Dr. Robert Hedaya talk about Functional Medicine approaches to depression. We’ve had Dr. Tom Sult talk about Lyme Disease and coinfections. Dr. Jeffrey Bland has joined us to share his thoughts on the evolution of epigenetics and personalized medicine. View our list of Open Access Teach-Ins. We have many more exciting sessions scheduled.

Since our Live Mentorship intake is small, and our clinic team is involved, a close relationship builds between the group participants in the online forum and in our live discussions. Many participants have deep experience and knowledge themselves, which further enriches the dialogue for all.

As participants move through the program, their growing confidence allows them to nurture and mentor those that are just joining. It’s a community that keeps evolving and growing, and one that you will continue to be a part of even after your program ends.

These are the other benefits to enrolling in the program: A 1-year Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) membership with Toolkit access (value $325), access to our online curriculum that supports learning by key topics, IFM training webinars, recordings of all live content, and access to the online forum.

Who should apply to the Functional Medicine Clinic Immersion™ ?

Practicing or student clinicians who have completed basic level Functional Medicine training and want to experience a live, Functional Medicine clinical setting working with real patient cases.
