Be a Genomic Medicine Expert

Genomic Medicine gives you the answers you need so you can create a fulfilling practice by providing your patients with better health outcomes – faster.

Why create a Genomic Medicine practice NOW?

You can get to the root of your patients’ health issues more efficiently – and with more accuracy – for better outcomes.

You can practice the way you want. Whether in a clinic or virtual practice, you can work with patients from anywhere.

You can leverage your expertise to be a leader in your community, attracting more patients and opportunities for success.

Have you been getting good results, but still find yourself searching for answers?

You strive for excellence. You want to provide the best care possible for your patients, and are always on the lookout for the methods and solutions that work. Your passion is what drives you, and your patients love your dedication to their success.

But sometimes that’s not enough. You still find yourself coming up short. What works for some patients doesn’t work for others, and you don’t know why. 

You’ve tried everything you know, but you can’t find the right answers. You know you are missing something, but you don’t know what.  

If only you knew how to find the answers you and your patient need.

Hi, I’m Dr. Bobbi Kline

 

After years of feeling frustrated and burned out in my ObGyn practice, it took a career-ending injury and my own healing journey to find a better way for my patients .. and for me.

I created a holistic women’s health practice, combining functional and energy medicine with my ObGyn expertise. But I still felt like I was missing something. There were still so many questions I couldn’t answer. I wanted to do better.

When I discovered genomics, I knew this was the missing piece. And yet I struggled to make it work. It felt complicated. For months I searched for resources to help me understand and use it more effectively.

Then I found Dr. Veltmann, who had been using genomics within a holistic clinical model since 2001 – and teaching it almost as long. Under his mentorship, the aha! moments cam fast and furious, and finally everything started to make sense. I was now creating personalized roadmaps for my patients with ease – starting with their DNA.

By 2013, I achieved my dream of having a fully virtual Genomic Medicine practice – with the freedom to work on my terms, and from anywhere.

Realizing that we could help other clinicians who were having the same challenges, Dr. Veltmann and I teamed up with a bigger vision. We launched our company in 2014 with a mission to create clinically useful education, testing, support and resources for clinicians seeking excellence in personalized healthcare.  

Does this sound like you?

You’re on a quest to find the resources and tools that eliminate the guesswork as to what you and your patients need.

You’ve studied functional or integrative medicine. While you notice you are often better able to help your patients, many of them don’t fit the protocols. 

You’ve heard about genomics, that it can help you provide even better, more personalized care – with more precision. You may even already be using it in your practice. 

You love what you do, and want to create a practice that nourishes and rewards you as much as your patients. 

But it feels haphazard. You’re confused or overwhelmed, and not getting the results you are looking for. You would love to have a trusted resource to help you learn how to put it all together in a cohesive way that makes sense to you – and your patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get through the course?

This is a 6-month course, and you can go at your own pace. The pre-recorded Modules contain 65 hours of learning, plus there are quizzes and learning integration exercises for each Module. Most clinicians find they need to set aside about 100 hours. We recommend completing at least 1 Module per month to stay on track.

Do I get access to all of the content right away?

Yes, you get full access to all of the course materials immediately upon purchase. You also get immediate access to all of your benefits.

How long do I have access to the course materials?

You have full access for six months. All of the Study Guides contain a complete set of slides, references and resources and those are yours to keep forever.

What if I don’t finish in 6 months?

You will have the option to enroll in the advanced Mastermind Program, a monthly membership with no long-term commitment. Access to the course is included so you can finish up any remaining Modules that way.

I want to get certified. How long do I have to do that?

You have up to 12 months after completing the course to submit your case study for certification.

How do I know if I am qualified to enroll?

The Genomic Medicine Certification Course is open to any licensed clinician who is practicing in the area of diet and lifestyle. We highly recommend some functional medicine or functional nutrition knowledge.

If you already have a Professional Account, you are qualified. If you are a qualified healthcare practitioner but your state doesn’t require licensing, you are welcome to enroll. If you are not sure you qualify, please contact us using the form below.

I’ve taken another course in genomics. How do I know if this course is worth taking?

Having some background in genomics already puts you in a great position for our course. We have a very different approach to genomics, and clinicians find our course is far more advanced and clinically relevant than any other courses they’ve taken. If you are not sure, contact us using the form below to discuss and see if this is right for you.

Do I have to use your genomic testing?

While the course is built upon our genomic testing, and you will get much more out of the course if you use it, it is not required. You can apply this knowledge to any genomic test platform.

I want to know if you cover specific genes in the course.

Over the 7 Modules we cover the key genes and SNPs in the core systems that you need to be able to use Genomic Medicine. Most are contained within the Ultimate Wellness test (we also cover ones coming in the future), but we do not cover all the genes tested – that would make the course well over 200 hours long!  You’ll learn the biochemistry and systems biology behind them, giving you an unparalleled foundation for future learning as the research continues to grow.
