Fellowship In Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine
This is The New Medicine
This Fellowship program provides advanced medical education on health promotion, wellness, prevention and management of disease with evidenced-based metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches. This Fellowship provides unparalleled content, groundbreaking research, knowledgeable speakers, and valuable resources that enable today's health practitioners for sustained success and growth. True wellness is more than the absence of disease.
Module I: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Endocrinology
This module provides an overview of the functions and interrelationships of specific hormones in the body including hormonal changes that manifest in men and women with aging. Metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches to managing hormonal deficiencies and endocrine disorders, including diabetes and obesity, are covered in this module.
Module II: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Cardiovascular Disease
The causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular and cardiometabolic diseases including CHD, CHF, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, and renal disease are covered in this module. Topics include cardiovascular pathophysiology and biology, inflammation, oxidation, hormones, adipokines, stress, nutrition and nutrigenomics, glycemic control, environmental factors and toxicology, infections, and risk factor testing.
Module III: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Neurology
This module reviews the most recent developments in the field of neurology utilizing a metabolic approach to the prevention, management, and treatment of neurologic diseases. The course will cover pathophysiology and the role of neurotransmitters, inflammatory and degenerative disorders, neurovascular diseases, psychological and psychiatric syndromes, the gut-immune-brain connection, and healthy brain function.
Module IV: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Gastroenterology
Comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches to gastrointestinal dysfunction and disease are reviewed in this module. Physiology and pathophysiology, GI microbiome and dysbiosis, gut permeability, hormones, diet, inflammatory bowel diseases, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, the gut-immune-brain connection, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive and glandular disorders are highlighted.
Module V: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Nutrition & Exercise
This module focuses on the role of nutrition and exercise in metabolic medicine with an emphasis on guidelines, protocols, and clinical applications. Nutritional biochemistry, aging, metabolism, diet and nutritional supplements, weight gain, weight loss and maintenance, exercise/sports and activity, nutrigenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, and cancer risk are discussed.
Module VI: A Metabolic and Functional Approach to Environmental Exposures and Detoxification
This toxicology module covers symptoms, disorders and diseases associated with exposures of heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals, drugs, nutrients, the natural environment, and other toxic causes of oxidative stress. This course describes the pathophysiology of toxic exposure, methods to prevent and avoid exposure including nutritional and lifestyle approaches, early detection, lab testing, and treatment protocols. Metabolic, digestive and antioxidative detoxification phases and processes are detailed.
Module VII: A Metabolic & Functional Approach to Inflammation & Autoimmune Disease
This module focuses on inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases, allergies, cancer, and the gutimmune-brain connection. Cellular and molecular biology of immunity, the cellular stress response, oxidation, genetic damage, inflammation, etiology of disease including environmental and lifestyle factors, and the risk for cancer development are reviewed. Clinical approaches to patient evaluations, testing, and disease management are provided.
Clinical Practice Review
This review course examines patient case histories with a range of metabolic symptoms, disorders, or diseases that are covered in Modules I-VII. This clinical intensive course provides the tools to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat, and manage a variety a patient conditions that are commonly and uncommonly observed in the clinical setting. The goal is to provide comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches towards disease management that enables the Fellow to practice Metabolic Medicine confidently and effectively.
