How do I update my member profile in the Member Directory?

Log into your account, then click “My Practitioner Profile.” If you would like your profile to be seen by other IFM members only, please check the box marked, “Restrict my profile to IFM Members only.” This box is found at the bottom of the page.

Whether or not you mark the box, you may also include information that only other members may see. This private information may be found under the heading, “Information for Member Listing (Private).”

Make your changes and click “Save Profile” at the bottom of the page.

Updates will be applied immediately to your listing. Enter the information you would like to appear in the Member Directory, and remember to activate your profile to appear in the search.
