What Will I Learn?
Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP)® is not a typical medical meeting. Now in its 14th year, the five-day course has been rigorously designed, critically evaluated, and continuously refined by the outstanding core faculty, each of whom brings a diverse and subject-specific clinical expertise to the application of functional medicine. AFMCP® is the cornerstone of IFM's Functional Medicine Certification Program providing an outstanding overview of functional medicine as well as practical applications to begin practicing functional medicine in daily practice.
The Institute for Functional Medicine, in response to educational needs expressed by physicians and other heathcare practitioners, has created the Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP)® educational program. AFMCP® addresses practitioner needs by focusing on the development of knowledge and skill in healthcare delivery by integrating the science-based best practices of established and emerging care into an effective and cost-efficient approach to treatment that can be taught to practitioners and delivered to patients. AFMCP® teaches the principles, processes, and clinical applications of functional medicine with the use of case studies that provide a model for personalized approaches to health care. Participating healthcare providers will learn how to apply functional medicine assessment tools to more fully evaluate patients' health status as well as construct effective clinical interventions to enhance outcomes.
