How do I complete the program?

Each module is between 2 to 5 hours divided into several lectures (each between 20 to 30 minutes). At the end of each lecture, you pass a quiz to make sure that you understand the material.  Once you complete all the modules, you receive a beautiful certificate delivered to your home or clinic and we add you to our graduates’ directory (so patients can find you).

Will I learn how to grow a Functional and Nutritional Medicine practice?

Yes. The course includes specific modules on 3 essential parts of clinical success:

  1. Medical coaching to increase patients’ commitment and engagement
  2. Marketing in healthcare to attract your ideal client using free and paid strategies
  3. How to create Functional and nutritional medicine services (cash and insurance) to increase your revenue and get paid well for your (and your team) skills and time
