Q: Am I eligible to be managed by the Wisdom Clinic after graduation?

Yes, upon graduation you are eligible and can be put on our practitioner waitlist.


The Wisdom Clinic acts as your management company, providing administrative, customer support, and marketing services. You choose the hours you want to work, and our team fills your schedule and helps move your clients along a year-long care plan. 

We have rigorous standards for managed practitioners, and  require you to meet the following criteria:


1. Holding a license as an MD, ND, DO, DC, DCM, or NP.


2. Being located within 30 miles of a city with at least a population of 1 million people or if you are licensed and practice in CA, TX, MI, GA, IL, NY, or FL.


3. Having a physical location to see patients from (which cannot be a home office).


4. Completing our 8 month educational track and receiving approval from your clinical mentor.

Q: What professional titles can I use when I complete this training?

Your professional title and certification from Wisdom Institute depends on your current healthcare license. You may only assume the title of Functional Medicine Practitioner if you hold an active healthcare license. You may only assume the title Functional Medicine Doctor if you are a doctor. 

Q: Why is this training shorter than other functional medicine trainings?

Our students have already gone through extensive health education, and we believe it is not helpful to learn functional medicine in a traditional educational environment. All other functional medicine trainings are pre-recorded content presented in a traditional academic context.



We run all our trainings live and provide small-group mentoring, which allows our students to absorb the important, practical material faster. We like to say it cuts out all the “fluff.”

Q: What jobs and career opportunities does this training open up?

Most of our graduates seek a job in a functional medicine clinic, medspa, IV clinic, or another type of holistic clinic upon graduation. This is the most common route for our graduates as the field is growing extremely quickly, and there are an abundance of job openings in these fields for both nurses and doctors.


Our credential gives you the professional recognition, but more importantly, the clinical mentoring to feel competent at the real-world practice of functional medicine. Employers seek practitioners with real clinical experience, and our training is the best preparation for that. There are also jobs in hospitals for functional medicine practitioners, but that seems to be less common.



Many of our graduates take the route of starting a private functional medicine practice. The demand for functional medicine is extremely high nationwide, with over 150,000 people searching for a functional medicine practitioner on google every month. Our Business Training is a comprehensive program designed to help you launch a functional medicine practice from the ground up in 90 days. In this course, the founder of the Wisdom Clinic walks you through all the essential steps to open your clinic, including:

  • Setting up your legal agreements and scope,
  • Your EHR and customer service technology,
  • Website & marketing.

We’ve created a highly sophisticated marketing system which, once set up, should generate consistent, passive client leads through google marketing. There’s a sample of the website template you’ll receive here, and a video walkthrough of the materials you receive here.
