What clinicians say about our program

This is a course that can be applied into any type of practice of medicine. I see so many possibilities.

Genomics gives me a window into previously unknown factors that may have not been considered or just overlooked.

As a chiropractor and clinical nutritionist, it changes how I look at a condition and provides more options.

Daniel Prociuk, DC, CFMP

"Genoma International’s Genomic Medicine Training program is unparalleled.

Dr. Joe and Dr. Bobbi present the coursework in a sophisticated way that is both engaging and easy for clinicians to understand.

I would highly recommend this invaluable program to all Functional Medicine practitioners.”

Jasmine Singh, PharmD

"I have learned SO much and believe this is truly nutrition’s future. It is so hard being a practitioner and not having answers for clients desperately seeking them…and sending them back on the path of trial and error."

Melissa Hehmann, RDN

"This course should be mandatory for anyone pursuing personalized medicine.

With well-considered scientific evidence and a digestible review of biochemistry, Joe Veltmann and Bobbi Kline carefully provide information aimed to generate practical, client-specific lifestyle and nutritional prescriptions that up- or down-regulate genes and molecular pathways to promote wellness.

 Highly recommended!"

Mary Jo Fishburn, MD

"I am truly loving the webinars and all that I am learning. I find all of this beyond fascinating! I understand how to use the genomic reports much better now, and am excited to start taking the information and applying it in real life for my patients."

Meryl Brandwein, RDN
