Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice – Mentorship program Level 1

Register for our popular Mentorship program Level 1 – Spring 2021

Mentor: Graeme Jones, clinical physiologist and CEO at Nordic Clinic Stockholm

Nordic Clinic leads the way in functional medicine in Europe. Our goal is ambitious – we aim to change the current healthcare model by preventing disease rather than just treating symptoms. We aim to optimise health and wellbeing, and believe the future of medicine is individualised healthcare. This we cannot achieve by ourselves and we want to support others with the same ambition. That’s why we offer mentorship programs for functional medicine practitioners.

Functional Medicine is a new method of healthcare delivery in Sweden and only a few individuals have solid clinical experience within the field. The work complexity is high and various parameters need to be considered in the clinical approach to find the underlying causes of symptoms and disease. When starting a career within this field it can feel overwhelming and difficult to structure work, interpret test results, gather all pieces of the health puzzle and then choose a treatment strategy. Our goal with this mentorship program is to share our clinical experiences and support other functional medicine practitioners in their clinical work. We want the group of practitioners to grow, who actively work to beat the global epidemic of chronic disease spreading rapidly around our globe.

Graeme Jones, clinical physiologist and founder of Nordic Clinic Stockholm, is the lead mentor of the mentorship program level 1. Over the past 15 years, Graeme has accumulated skills and experiences from the medical field, fitness, rehabilitation, nutrition and clinical research. From his many years of working with patients, he’s one of the most clinically experienced practitioners in Europe, but he’s also passionate about teaching and coaching practitioners in functional medicine and nutritional science. 

“Many thanks Graeme! It is so valuable that you share all your great knowledge and experience. Looking forward to joining more of your future programs.”

Jenny Choudhury, participator of the mentorship program level 1 (Spring 2020) 

The mentorship program level 1 is for functional medicine students or practitioners already working within the functional medicine field, wanting to develop their confidence with clinical cases. It requires basic knowledge of the functional medicine approach and testing. The program will not include theory about various tests (for this purpose we regularly offer test specific training). We assume you have basic understanding of the most common functional medicine tests (see the list below) as well as for various diagnoses and symptoms. The program will focus on real client cases and how you clinically approach the detective work to find root causes of symptoms and create successful treatment plans.

  • Practice test interpretations and treatment strategies of some of the most common functional medicine tests
  • Share knowledge and experiences within the group
