International Society of Integrative Metabolic and Functional Cardiovascular Medicine
It is with great excitement following the meeting in Scottsdale for IFM that we are moving forward on the structure and format of the International Society of Integrative Metabolic and Functional Cardiovascular Medicine (ISIMFC).
As we plan to have more cardiovascular specialists training in metabolic and functional medicine,
it is important to familiarize yourself with the Metabolic Cardiology training curriculum through A4M and University of South Florida. This course has 4 modules and modules 16A and 16B are both ongoing and available online now. They must be done before Modules 16 C (Tampa, FL October 12-14) and D (Las Vegas December 13-16) which will be available in the fall.
There is the opportunity now to sign up and pursue this training and certification and the detail and intensity of the training is unique in the world. Online courses and weekend training sessions with world class faculty including Mark Houston, MD, Pamela Smith, MD, Mimi Guarneri, MD, Joe Lamb MD, and Deanna Minich, PhD.
