The Master of Integrative and Functional Medicine Program was designed to help practitioners acquire clinical integrative healthcare knowledge about the nature of illness, healing, and wellness. Practitioners will learn to incorporate evidence-based, safe and ethical integrative therapies through analysis of a comprehensive patient history and physical examination, and interpretation of basic and advanced clinical laboratory tests. The goal of the program is to develop integrative healthcare expertise for the treatment and management of common acute and chronic health conditions.

The program contains (31) distance learning modules that hold a number of lessons on each topic. Case presentations and treatment protocols on a number of disease and disorders are included for: Cardiovascular Disease, Gastrointestinal Disease/Disorders, Lyme and Autoimmune Disease(s) and more.

This program begins with the Basic Sciences of Integrative Medicine and progresses onto Specific Systems Dysfunction.  The modules are designed to be taken in sequential order since each module builds upon the one that precedes it. Students are required to show proficiency in each Module before progressing onto ensuing modules. Proficiency is shown through completion of Homework Assignments and an end of module exams with a score of 80% or higher.

  • Modules 1 through 31: Each module contains: A Video, Lesson Guide, Power Point Slides, Supplemental Materials, Homework Assignment, and End of Module Exam. Materials may vary in each module and are noted accordingly.  All student progress is monitored and reviewed by instructors. 
  • Master Final Examination: (Two Parts) Part I is taken on-line and consists of 150 questions; derived collectively from the program modules. This part of the exam elicits critical thinking skills as it relates to integrative healthcare. The components include patient history; physical examination; clinical laboratory testing; and formulating a working diagnosis and treatment plan. A score of 80% or better is required to pass this part of the examination. Part II requires submission of (1) case history presentation. A passing grade requires that all components are met as they are taught throughout the Master Program.

Remediation

Students will have a second opportunity to sit for the proficiency examination(s) and Final Examination (Part I) in the event they do not pass the exam the first time. Students will have the opportunity to resubmit a case presentation that does not meet the criteria per the program requirements. An administrative fee of $150 is required at the time of resubmission.

In the event a passing score is not achieved after a second attempt of successfully completing Parts I and/or II, a third opportunity will be afforded. It will be required that specific modules and lessons must be retaken in order to strengthen the proficiency of the learner. The course instructor(s) will determine the modules and lessons based on the details of the examination. If a passing grade is not achieved after the third attempt, the learner is required to retake the full program.

Recertification is required every two years by submission of one case study along with a renewal fee of $300.00. Graduates applying for recertification will be provided the required case presentation format via email.
