Federal Way, WAThe Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) has announced its collaboration with Integrated Connections, a leading-edge placement firm that specializes exclusively in the field of functional and integrative medicine and connects providers to career opportunities in which they can transform health.

As the functional medicine movement continues to grow, we are witnessing vastly expanded professional opportunities for IFM Certified Practitioners to practice functional medicine in settings uniquely suited to their interests and skills.

We hope the functional medicine community will take full advantage of the services provided through our collaboration with Integrated Connections.”

IFM members who are interested in receiving information regarding career opportunities will be able to sign up for monthly job alerts through Integrated Connections. All IFM members will receive a 50% discount on job advertising services.
