All About the AFMC Certification

The Applied Functional Medicine Certification™ (AFMC) distinguishes a practitioner from his or her peers, acknowledging their advanced training in foundational functional medicine principles and their detailed, practical application in client work. This is where it all gets “pulled together” to certify that a practitioner has deep and demonstrated undrstanding and ability to work with the knowledge they have gleaned. The AFMC certification is your chance to *SHINE* and show us what you’ve got. It’s Applied Know-How at its best!
