Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice® (AFMCP)

Learn New Tools for Treating Common Conditions

Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP)® integrates the latest medical research with a model of care that accounts for each patient’s individual history, unique genetic makeup, and environmental and lifestyle factors. Many chronic diseases occur when fundamental lifestyle factors like diet, movement, rest, and/or sleep are lacking or mismatch with a patient’s genetic makeup. AFMCP shows clinicians how to design effective, personalized treatments for every patient.

A mutually empowering patient-practitioner relationship is a key element of the Functional Medicine model.

“When people feel like they are being heard and listened to—that the doctor really wants to know what’s going on with them—the person feels empathy; they feel this understanding, and that automatically makes them more compliant. And by using some of the tools in the toolkit … it begins to open up the door of possibility, so you can expand your repertoire away from just being able to write a prescription.” – Dr. Robert Rountree

At AFMCP, expert educators provide case-based, interactive presentations using real-world situations to model the use of a suite of new clinical tools. These tools help clinicians make more personalized assessments, design appropriate treatments to address each patient’s unique combination of history, genetics, and lifestyle, and guide patients through the sometimes difficult process of making sustainable lifestyle changes that lead to better outcomes. Integrating the simple strategies of modifiable lifestyle factors in a healthcare plan can help patients feel more empowered to take charge of their own health, thereby increasing overall health and well-being.
