This course is for health and healthcare professionals including Naturopathic Doctors, Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses, Functional Medicine Doctors and Practitioners, Dentists, Nutritionists/Dieticians, Therapists, Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Health Coaches, Nutritionists, Fitness Instructors, and others working in related capacities.

Can I receive Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for this course?
Yes. The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine has authorized 24 CMEs for Biological Medicine for Practitioners as of April 2023. (This does not include the 10 CMEs that are also a part of the prerequisite Introduction to Biological Medicine course). The two courses total 34 CMEs when completed.
What does "certification" entail?
Participants who successfully complete all aspects of the Biological Medicine for Practitioners Certification Course will receive a Certificate of Completion. This certificate recognizes that its holder has successfully completed this program and has acquired the knowledge and skills needed to integrate BioMed into their practice. A professional learning program, this Course is offered in order to improve practitioners’ knowledge and skill base. This certificate does not take the place of a medical license or similar credential required by a licensing or regulatory agency.
Is this an online or in-person course?
Biological Medicine for Practitioners is a hybrid course. Participants must complete a series of 4-6 lectures (approx. one hour each) and assignments online before attending a 4-day in-person course during which they will develop greater familiarity with diagnostics and therapies and the skills required to successfully integrate these into effective case management. Participants will be asked to identify which in-person event they plan to attend when enrolling.
