The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) sets the gold standard for the education, training, and clinical practice of Functional Medicine globally.

The IFM believes health and vitality are essential to the human spirit. We work to advance the highest expression of individual health by advocating Functional Medicine as the standard of care. To achieve this goal, our work is primarily focused in these five areas:

Education. 

We train Functional Medicine clinicians to act as change agents in reversing the epidemic of chronic disease. 

 

Access.

We facilitate the broadest possible integration of Functional Medicine into the global healthcare system.

 

Economics.

We ensure that the practice of Functional Medicine is economically viable for providers, patients, and payers. 

 

Collaboration & Development. 

We create and support key alliances that advance IFM’s mission to make Functional Medicine the standard of care. 

 

Research.

We catalyze and facilitate clinical research that supports the Functional Medicine model.
