Episode 008: James Maskell, The Evolution of Medical Education: How The Functional Forum Is Changing The Way Clinicians Learn, Collaborate and Practice Medicine
In Episode 008 of A Medicinal Mind: Wisdom and Well-Being, we welcome the innovative creator of the world’s largest integrative medicine conference, the Functional Forum and integrative medicine visionary James Maskell.
I was quite fortunate to connect with James in October 2016 at a Functional Forum event in Washington D.C. and have since collaborated in creating and releasing my E-Book on Functional and Integrative Medicine Education. James has been perhaps my single biggest influence pushing me to become an educator and advocate for functional medicine and is a tremendously passionate role model for anyone seeking to reverse chronic disease and achieve optimal health.
Back in March of this year, I was honored to be a part of James’ podcast The Evolution of Medicine’s Functional Forum, where we discussed the vision and purpose of the functional medicine education resource E-Book and the greater need to expand medical education beyond medical school walls and hospital wards.
As a continuation of this conversation, we share today in a reflective and hopeful conversation addressing
1. A brief State of the Union for the Functional Forum and Functional Medicine education as a whole.
2. Updates on educational opportunities through the Institute for Functional Medicine
3. Ways to continue to grow community and promote this type of care in the next generation of clinicians.
4. James’ latest projects and visions for the Functional Forum
I was so thrilled to share in this conversation with James and hope you enjoy and feed off the the tremendous energy and passion in this exhilarating discussion.
