Clinical Education is proud to be an International Partner of The Institute for Functional Medicine™ co-delivering The Institute for Functional Medicine’s education.
Clinical Education is proud to be one of the first international partner organisations with IFM, expanding the reach of functional medicine to the United Kingdom. Through our partnership with IFM, together, we have strengthened both organisation’s goals to further the application of functional medicine care for patients in the UK.
Functional medicine is essential to the global transformation of health and wellness. IFM’s mission is to ensure the widespread adoption of functional medicine. IFM has been educating clinicians since 1991 — and formally through its certification program since 2009. Physicians from 97 countries have attended IFM’s foundational training course, Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™ (AFMCP™). Over the last 30 years, more than 54,000 practitioners have been introduced to the principles and practices of functional medicine.
In 2011, Clinical Education hosted the inaugural AFMCP UK course in London. Since then, our relationship with IFM has grown from strength to strength, we now help run the international Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules™ as a live stream component. Over 1200 practitioners have now trained through AFMCP™ Europe or the international Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules™.
The IFM International courses planned for 2023 are:
- Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™ (AFMCP) Europe (Blended Online and In Person): 20th June, concluding with mandatory two days in person in London 22nd – 23rd September 2023.
- Functional Medicine Masterclass – 24th September 2023
