We don't have a formal application process, so we count on you to make sure that SAFM education is right for you! All of our Semester programs are intended for practitioners that are currently engaged in an active healthcare practice and have had some level of initial experience engaging with at least 8 patients or clients, as appropriate for their modality. Our students are currently engaged in healthcare roles in many different types of practices and business models, so it does not need to be a private practice or a functional medicine-focused practice. You MUST already have an appropriate license or certification for your practice modality. Having an existing business or working in a practice in which you can apply the functional medicine concepts learned throughout the Semester is an important part of making the learning meaningful and sustainable.
