“I wanted to thank you all for your generosity of heart, mind, time and resources. I really needed the support as I set up my clinic, especially during the pandemic, and found more than that in this programme. It felt like family. I was challenged, inspired, educated, grew my confidence and fell even more in love with functional medicine. Since joining the programme my practice grew exponentially… felt like baptism by fire lol… but I love it and I am so grateful for being part of this programme with such brilliant mentors. I couldn’t have reached this next level of professional growth without you all. I highly recommend all functional medicine practitioners starting up to join this programme. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.”

“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:

Weekly Internal Meetings: These are actual working meetings for our team where we cover real patient situations. In our weekly clinical grand rounds and physician rounds, you’ll find us reviewing patient histories, labs, treatment plans, and discussing the latest clinically-applicable research. It can feel like you are jumping in mid-flow to these conversations since the emphasis is on ensuring the coordination of patient care at our clinic. However, past participants report that within a month or two things start to ‘click’ and that ultimately having this truly unique insight meaningfully elevates the outcomes of their learning. Participants attend live, online, and post questions and contributions that our clinic team responds to as much as is possible during those meetings. Often these questions and contributions lead to dialogue with participants too. Cases discussed may be at variable stages of their work with our clinic. Dr. Fitzgerald’s team also holds a monthly Q&A session. This is an opportunity to bring your pressing questions about any aspect of Functional Medicine to the table to discuss with Dr. Fitzgerald’s clinic team. Everything is accessed via webinar and the Internet making it possible to join us from anywhere.

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 library of Teach-Ins and register for your FREE membership to gain access to our latest recording. We have many more exciting sessions scheduled.

Since our Live 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:  Our program is offered in collaboration with the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM).  Our practice relies heavily on the IFM tools and you’ll see many references to the extensive IFM toolkit throughout our curriculum. Enrollment in our programs provides a $100 discount on annual IFM membership.
