We are a premier consultative Functional Medicine practice in Raleigh, NC currently expanding our practice. Our practice consists of deep initial and ongoing assessment of underlying physiology as well as lifestyle challenges and working to optimize both – leading to resolution of symptoms as well as health optimization.
Our practice focuses on a solid working knowledge of pertinent physiology and treatment methodologies involving a range of issues (ie Gut, HPA axis, Cardiovascular, Methylation, Hormones, BHRT women, Thyroid, Dementia etc) as well as a strong working familiarity with lifestyle issues (Nutrition, Toxins, Movement, Sleep, Stress).
We are currently close to becoming a certified Bredesen practice, so having Bredesen certification is a plus.
We deeply integrate Health-Coaching (via Health Coaches) into our therapeutic approach as we feel proper navigation through the maze of lifestyle integration is vital to the success of our patients. We do not employ invasive or one-off therapies such as IV’s, colon irrigations, machine-guided therapy recommendations or similar.
While we will certainly work to help train candidates, it is expected that candidates will have a solid working knowledge of Functional Medicine (ie completed A4M or IFM training modules or extensive clinical experience). As Functional Medicine education is constant and ongoing, we will certainly expect that successful applicants will appreciate the need and have the desire to continue their education.
FoundationMED prides itself on its Patient-First focus. This means having sufficient time to properly and completely evaluate patients, as well as being comfortable with doing targeted research as much as needed to address a given patient issue. The patient “experience” is paramount although we also have the expectation of our patients that they fully participate in the therapeutic process.
Salary will be commensurate with training and experience, and will be further discussed.
