More about our programs:
Most of the medical world follows what are referred to as ‘general guidelines’ based on statistics to provide diagnoses and treatments that work for the majority of people. In Precision Medicine, we start with your DNA and an extensive lab panel (if purchased) to get a holistic picture of your health. With your results, we review genetic factors unique to you, as well as personalized interventions to turn certain genes on or off – we can turn “on” your good genes with certain lifestyle choices. We combine all of this into a personalized health plan just for you.
Both the Precision Medicine Training and Fundamentals Course are suited for a variety of backgrounds. While having experience in health coaching, wellness, or medicine is beneficial, additional resources are provided to participants to assist in understanding more medically-driven concepts. If you have an interest in changing the world of health care for the better, our programs offer an incredible educational experience in Precision Medicine.
Apply to join our next cohort by clicking here. Applications are reviewed within one business day and accepted applicants will receive instructions for scheduling an interview with a member of our team. Cohorts begin each January and July.
The Precision Medicine Training Program - formerly known as the Wild Health Precision Medicine Fellowship - provides an interactive fellowship-style education format.
The Precision Medicine Training Program is split into two cohorts throughout the year, beginning each January and July. The Fellowship roster is limited to ensure an intimate learning experience for fellows.
Enrollment for the Fundamentals of Precision Medicine Course is on a rolling basis.
Payment Plan options are available upon enrollment. For more information on this, please apply for the program. Upon acceptance, candidates will be provided next steps. A Tuition Reduction Program is not available at this time.
Yes – anyone who participates in either program is invited to attend and receives a special discount for our annual Wild Health Summit. Fellows in the Precision Medicine Training Program exclusively receive invitations to a Summit Kickoff Event.
Fellows in the Training Program have the opportunity to enroll at least two practicum patients to provide care alongside a Wild Health care team in order to practice the educational material. Practicum Patients will receive an exclusive discount code to participate.
Precision Medicine Training Program fellows get lifetime access to the program materials while participants of the Fundamentals Course receive access to their materials for 1-year from the purchase date.
Fellows can anticipate spending an average of 8-10 hours per week on the program, including time spent in weekly webinars, reading/listening, and working with practicum patients.
Fundamentals Course participants have the freedom to self-pace the 12-module course on their own time.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and American Academy of HIV Medicine. Postgraduate Institute for Medicine is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The need for this educational activity was determined by assessment and review of data and literature on the topic, practice gap assessment, and self-assessed practice gaps of the learners through the Wild Health application process.
This activity is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, and health coaches who want to incorporate genomics-based precision medicine into practice.
The purpose of this activity is to provide participants with evidence-based practice information specifically in the areas of genomics-based precision medicine that can be applied to practice upon completion of the fellowship.
Upon completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- Describe the overall approach to personalized precision medicine and health coaching.
- Differentiate between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and genetic mutations, and describe the role of epigenetics in DNA expression and phenotypic impact on patients.
- Identify key SNPs, their mechanism of action and impact, and the interventions associated with the SNPs, and their role in precision medicine.
- Develop strategies and intervention for individualized exercise prescription, training, and recovery based on the patient’s lifestyle, preferences, and genetic factors.
- Identify individual factors from genetics, laboratory data, and lifestyle that can be modified to reduce the risk for development of chronic diseases, including hypertension, insulin resistance/diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia/Alzheimer’s, hypothyroidism, and osteoporosis/osteoarthritis, and to screen for chronic diseases and implement individualized approaches for management.
- Utilize genetic and lifestyle factors as well as supplement characteristics to impact optimization of vitamins, minerals, and other supplements to create a tailored patient management plan.
- Manage gastrointestinal conditions by identifying key physiologic and clinical elements of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and intestinal permeability, as well as utilizing genetic and lifestyle factors as well as supplement characteristics to effect positive change in the microbiome.
- Utilize lifestyle interventions within precision medicine to decrease stress and promote behavioral change, mindfulness, motivation, and sleep optimization.
- Utilize genetic and lifestyle factors to optimize approaches to men’s and women’s health conditions, including fertility and HRT.
- Identify the genetic factors affecting autoimmune disorders, and apply lifestyle interventions and appropriate supplements to manage autoimmune disorders.
- Apply current recommendations and approaches to screening and reducing risk for breast, cervical, lung, prostate and colon, and skin cancer.
