Why I Recommend the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy

I highly recommend The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy’s health coach training. In fact, this is the program I trust to train my own staff. Read on for details about a special discount on FMCA tuition, just for my followers.

What is FMCA?

The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCA) is the only coach training program founded in collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in Functional Medicine. FMCA teaches a comprehensive curriculum, integrating the principles of Functional Medicine and nutrition with positive psychology coaching techniques, mind-body medicine, and the psychology of eating. This program is the gold standard in health coaching.

As a student, you’ll learn from FMCA’s elite faculty of health and wellness industry leaders, including me, Dr. Kristi Hughes, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, and more. And unlike most web-based programs, FMCA provides hands-on training—you’ll have regular opportunities to apply your skills in live coaching sessions. That means you graduate from the program ready to hit the ground running as a confident, knowledgeable Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach (FMCHC).

Because FMCA is approved by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHWC), graduating from this program means you meet the training requirement to sit for ICHWC’s National Board Certification exam for Health & Wellness Coaches. The exam, and the credential National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), is defining a new high standard for the field. The NBC-HWC credential grants additional credibility and employment opportunities, should you choose to pursue it after graduating from FMCA.

Why is FMCA Right for You?

Functional Medicine Health Coach Training is a 12-month online program. It’s built to be flexible enough for adult learners with busy lives. Whether you have a job, are a student, or are thinking of getting back into the workforce, if you’re ready to pursue new career opportunities, you’ll find an engaging curriculum and a welcoming community at FMCA.

Maybe you want to share the wisdom and experience you’ve gained through your own health journey. Maybe you’re passionate about Functional Medicine and are ready to take the next step toward a career in this growing field. No matter your motivation, this program will exceed your expectations and help you connect your passions with your next career move.

You’re a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach. Now What?

Upon graduating from FMCA as a certified coach, you may choose to establish a private coaching business, work for a Functional Medicine or conventional medical practice, specialize in corporate wellness, or design your own unique career path. This movement is young and growing fast, so take the opportunity blaze your own trail, touch people’s lives, and be part of the future of healthcare.
