Go Beyond Theory to Improve Patient Outcomes

The best learning experiences involve a dynamic interplay between theory and application. Clinicians who attend IFM's 5-day foundational course, Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP), participate in their own learning and thereby acquire skills to apply immediately in the clinic.

At AFMCP, experienced educators present on the biochemical foundations of disease and wellness, while facilitated small group sessions and case studies help turn theory into practice. Seasoned Functional Medicine practitioners guide attendees in how to use new concepts for better patient outcomes.

Therefore, addressing oral health is a necessary component of a comprehensive Functional Medicine approach
