FELLOWSHIP
ANTI-AGING METABOLIC MEDICINE (F AAMM)

The Fellowship in Anti-Aging Metabolic Medicine (FAAMM) prepares practitioners to become leaders in a new form of medicine: one that is personalized, preventive, and predictive. Our Fellows learn a wellness-oriented approach to care, built upon the latest breakthroughs in scientific research across a diverse array of medical and healthcare disciplines. This program allows clinicians to continue caring for patients, while simultaneously learning the most current and relevant information related to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease.

Why the Fellowship is right for you:

Our advanced Fellowship program provides an interactive educational experience through a modular training curriculum that includes hands-on training and active live participation. The Fellowship is designed to prepare professionals to effectively practice Anti-Aging, regenerative, and functional medicine: focusing on the patient holistically and comprehensively. The program is rooted in a systems-biology approach, and emphasizes progressive and innovative learning. Modules are facilitated by world-renowned experts of functional medicine, all of whom utilize an interdisciplinary approach. The program’s final two courses consolidate and streamline knowledge by simplifying and distilling complex issues, and demonstrating how to implement effective patient care. Throughout the course of the Fellowship, one-on-one mentorship will be provided as needed. Join our community of thought leaders as we discuss shared experiences, ask and answer questions, and reshape the field of integrative healthcare.

Module I: Endocrinology
This module provides an overview of the functions and interrelationships of specific hormones in the body, including hormonal changes that manifest in aging men and women. Metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches to managing hormone deficiencies and endocrine disorders, including diabetes and obesity, are also covered.

Read Module

Module II: Cardiovascular Disease
This module assesses the causes, mechanisms, diagnoses, and management of cardiovascular and cardiometabolic diseases including CHD, CHF, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, and renal disease. 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.

Read Module

Module III: 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.

Read Module

Module IV: Gastroenterology
This module focuses on comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches to gastrointestinal dysfunction and disease. 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.

Read Module

MODULE V (NON–CME): Clinical Intensives
This review course examines patient case histories, covering a range of metabolic symptoms, disorders, and diseases that are highlighted in modules I-IV. This clinically intensive course provides the tools to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat, and manage a variety of patient conditions in the clinical setting. The ultimate goal is to provide comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches towards disease management, and enable clinicians to practice Anti-Aging Medicine confidently and effectively.

Read Module

MODULE VI: Mitochondrial Restoration and Infections
Loss of function in mitochondria, organelles chiefly responsible for cellular energy production, can result in symptoms that range from excessive fatigue to other manifestations of chronic disease. This module will review overall mitochondrial dysfunction and restoration, with specific focus on treatments for common age-related diseases including dementia, cardiovascular disease, fatigue syndromes, and other genetic conditions.

Read Module

MODULE VII: Inflammation & Autoimmune Disease
This module focuses on inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases, allergies, cancer, and the gut-immune-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 also reviewed. Clinical approaches to patient evaluations, testing, and disease management are provided.

Read Module

MODULE VIII: Weight Management / Nutrition / Integrative Cancer Therapies
This module will review a range of current topics in modern integrative healthcare, including key concepts surrounding metabolism & weight loss, sports medicine, and integrative cancer therapies. Become well-versed in the most cutting-edge therapies and treatment modalities to treat complex disorders, while addressing the root causes and symptoms of chronic disease.
