This is an online Functional Medicine training for practitioners ready to start learning a practical “hands on” approach to patient treatments. Other institutions offer excellent Functional Medicine degree programs, which are theoretical and academic in nature. This course is quite different because it focuses on the practical application of treatments for a wide range of health conditions, which you can put into action right away. You’ll learn the concepts, tools and applications essential to supplement program design, when to order labs and what tests to use to address the most common complaints seen in clinical practice.
The course has three components. We start off looking at you, your goals and helping to define your purpose. Then the bulk of the course material focuses on applying clinical nutrition programs by making specific supplement recommendations. We cover each element of supplement program design and treatment prioritization so you can learn to create clinically effective programs that patients will actually stick with. The last portion of the course is an introductory section covering the business basics required to getting started. During the three-month program, you will have assignments to complete in a variety of areas.
