Clinical Education established themselves as a non-profit organisation in 2012, with the aim of changing the world through education. Fast forward to now, they offer a range of education experiences for their members – all underpinned by Lifestyle and Functional Medicine principles – via their blogs, course partnerships, education partnerships and archived resources.
Clinical Education is also proud to be an Education Partner of The Institute for Functional Medicine, by assisting with the organisation and regional expertise of IFM educational events streamed or in-person in the UK. After 30 years of association and involvement with the Functional Medicine Movement, Clinical Education is a regional hub for those that are looking to train in and apply Functional Medicine into their practice.
Part of their work is engaging with Primary Healthcare Professionals working within the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. They understand, that for many overworked, stressed GPs, the thought of making lifestyle medicine recommendations within a standard appointment time can feel daunting, Collaborating with co-creators Dr Panja and Dr Rangan Chatterjee, they created a unique learning opportunity in ‘Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine (PLM). PLM is a self-paced, interactive learning platform that allows Primary Care professionals to learn about how to implement Lifestyle Medicine into their consultations. They partnered with Social Enterprise company Practice Unbound to deliver this training, a partnership they continue to be proud of.
