Course Description

From financial planning and business planning to sales, marketing and setting up your office, every aspect of your functional medicine practice will be covered. We also have cases of practices we’ve already helped build up, so you can learn from these clinicians as a member of the Kalish Community.

Practitioners, Patients and Practice – You, Your Cases and Your Business Structure

 

We all tend to focus exclusively on patient cases and tend to neglect our own self-care. To fully round out your functional medicine education, this course will help you put as much energy into developing the business side of the practice as you have already put into your clinical skills and patient cases.

Through online education, an active online community and cases you will learn about the key areas required for creating a low overhead cash based practice. You’ll learn how to implement each essential element required to create your ideal clinic. This course requires active participation and has weekly assignments to keep you on track, as well as a series of live webinars to check in with other practitioners and get feedback on your progress.
