The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, Inc. is transforming healthcare through the launch of a Coaching Center that makes health coaching affordable and accessible.

The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in training physicians in Functional Medicine, is transforming the way medicine is practiced. In 2015, the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, Inc. was established in collaboration with IFM to train health coaches in the Functional Medicine model. We’re preparing coaches to work on collaborative care teams to help physicians care for their patients with chronic disease through diet and lifestyle changes.
