FMU Guest Lecture Series 2019

The FMU Guest Lecture Series is true continuing education and one of the jewels in the crown of the education at Functional Medicine University. Dr. Ron Grisanti has a track record of being a ‘medical detective’ and when it comes to sniffing out real experts he has left no stone unturned. The guest lectures run in addition to the accredited Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner core training, and are actually optional – so no pressure – but having followed the entire series myself I highly recommend these for the clinical pearls and nuggets you just won’t hear anywhere else.

Unique to FMU these experts represent a wide variety of opinion, and that’s the secret of a true education.

  • So whereas just about everywhere else I am hearing ‘oh you must do bioidentical hormones, actually FMU will show you both how to use them and how to get the same or even better results without them with other natural modalities.
  • When it seems the whole world has hopped on the bandwagon of keto and low carb actually FMU will bring you the experts in this but also the experts NOT using this and their results too.
  • When just about everyone is saying ‘oh you must use this supplement or that’ actually FMU speakers often have qualifiers on who shouldn’t really be taking that supplement, and an attention to detail that’s important for certain populations in your client groups.

Full Range of Clinical Healing Modalities for your Toolbox

Dr. Grisanti believes in loading up your clinical toolbox with a full range of modalities and bringing you the latest and greatest in healing approaches to all aspects of health inside the functional medicine model. You’ll see some familiar faces but others not on the digital marketing track and health summit model are also introduced to you, often with a mindblowing lifetime clinical experience in functional medicine, natural healing and advanced functional testing – who knew it was around over 20 years, right!?

Continuing Education is Free at FMU

Another unique feature of Functional Medicine University is there is no upsell, no extra charges to the continuing education, you get a lifetime membership to FMU with your enrollment. Once your initial tuition is paid there are no expensive monthly membership clubs, continuing education is free at Functional Medicine University!

All lectures are archived for download by students past and present – available as:
