The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy is a ground-breaking program that was established in collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine. They are on a mission to transform healthcare by making Health Coaches the new face of wellness medicine. To fulfill their dream of seeing a Health Coach in every physician's office, they created a unique program that blends Functional Medicine with the teachings and coaching skills derived from positive psychology. These two ways of looking at human beings are remarkably similar: they are both based on sound scientific evidence and both address what we need to thrive. To round out the curriculum, students learn how to incorporate functional nutrition, eating psychology, and mind-body medicine into their approach as well.
The roster of teachers for this 12-month online program includes world-renowned faculty from The Institute for Functional Medicine and leaders in positive psychology. But to become an effective coach, it takes more than acquiring knowledge. Students engage in hands-on coaching, including a supervised practicum.
If you have a passion for helping others, a love of learning about health and wellness, or want to integrate your previous healthcare training with Functional Medicine and positive psychology so that you can enter this exciting field, I encourage you to imagine yourself as a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach and apply now.
