Field Notes: An Exploration of Functional Medicine

Aug 3, 2020

Dr. Rob Downey and Dr. Dan Kalish have a discussion as two functional medicine physicians to talk about telemedicine, what they are doing to improve their practices, forming long term relationships with patients, and looking towards longevity in functional medicine.
Dr. Dan Kalish, founder of The Kalish Institute for Functional Medicine, has trained over 2,000 practitioners on building successful Telemedicine and Functional Medicine practices. Founded in 2006, The Kalish Institute teaches clinical application and patient communication techniques through a hands-on, case-based approach. In direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Kalish has honed the focus of course-offerings at The Kalish Institute to meet the growing practitioner demands for knowledge on best practices in transitioning to Telemedicine. Dr. Kalish is an IFM Certified Practitioner, and a lead faculty for the Institute for Functional Medicine Practice Implementation Program. Dr. Kalish has authored three books on Functional Medicine, and is a notable speaker at Integrative Medicine conferences.
