Isn’t it strange that functional medicine schools don’t teach you how to successfully build a business? Most clinicians graduate with expensive certifications and still have no idea how to make their first dollar in the industry.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE BUSINESS ACADEMY

Is the ONLY place online to learn the skills of practicing functional medicine while also giving you all the business skills you need to create a simple, profitable functional medicine practice with nothing more than your laptop and Zoom account. 

YOU WILL FEEL QUALIFIED AND SUPPORT by health mentors who are passionately committed to YOU and YOUR BUSINESS GOALS, without wasting any more time, energy, or resources dreaming about doing this or investing in excessive clinical training.

MY FRIEND, YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN!

Your Virtual Functional Medicine Practice may look like mine…

 

Creating your own schedule that allows you to plan when you work and when you don't.

✓ Having the mental clarity and capability to keep up with the demands of work and life.

✓ Creating time to prioritize your own health, not just your patients' health.

✓ Saying goodbye to your office commute, long hours, and stressful late nights.

✓ Having the FREEDOM to be your own boss.

✓ Feeling good about your choices, because they are informed and empowered decisions that you had the freedom to make.

✓ Stepping into the healthiest, happiest, most fulfilled version of yourself!

The struggle is so real! A Virtual Functional Medicine Practice is perfect for you if you feel like this:

YOU'RE BURNT OUT

After working day after day filling prescriptions, you're completely drained. You know you want more out of your personal and professional life, but you're so exhausted and unfilled, it's difficult to see a way out. If something is going to change, you need an easy-to-follow roadmap!

YOU FEEL CAUGHT BETWEEN 2 WORLDS

It feels like in order to be successful in your career, you have to sacrifice precious time with your loved ones. Or you take a pay cut to make time for your family.

YOU DON’T WANT TO GIVE UP THE YEARS OF EDUCATION & MONEY YOU’VE INVESTED

You don’t want to have to choose between the parts of you that you’ve spent years building (aka your career, your education, and your family!)

YOU DON’T THINK YOU HAVE THE TIME TO LEARN A WHOLE NEW FIELD

Between your work, family, and personal schedules you can't imagine finding another minute. You're beyond busy, but you also have goals for your future. You're looking for a solution that works for your schedule, instead of overwhelming it.

YOU FEEL UNDERQUALIFIED TO PRACTICE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

You think you have to be 150% perfect in order to take action. It's easy to fall into the thinking that says you need another degree, another certification, or a massive social media following before you can make a change. 

YOU WANT TO MAKE A BIGGER IMPACT IN MEDICINE & YOU FEEL LIKE THE WHOLE MEDICAL SYSTEM IS AGAINST YOU

Deep down, you know you were meant for more. You're passionate about your work, but something inside of you is telling you there has to be a better way to make an impact!

IF YOU RESONATED WITH ANY OF THE ABOVE... GOOD.


YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! READ ON!

 

I Want You to Take a Moment
and Imagine...

YOU’RE FREE FROM THE CONFINES OF TRADITIONAL MEDICINE.

You know how to blend your years of education, unique experience, passion for holisistic health in way that aligns with you, your clients, AND your lifestyle goals.

 

YOU GET TO DECIDE EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT YOUR CAREER.

No more feeling tied to the schedule your employer decides! You finally have choice to decide when you want to work, who you want to work with, and how to serve in a way that aligns with YOU.

YOU GET TO SPEND SO MUCH MORE TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES

YOU MAKE MORE MONEY THAN A BRAIN SURGEON IN 20 HRS/WEEK

You're finally being paid for your expertise, knowledge, and skill, which allows you to work with more intentionality and more impact, without adding more work to your to-do list.

HERE ARE THE FOUR TOP REASONS IT FEELS HARD TO START PRACTICING FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

YOU DON'T FEEL QUALIFIED

The truth is Functional Medicine is like an extension of the clinical training you’ve already invested deeply in. The most important component of practicing Functional Medicine is mastering your ability to order and interpret lab testing, so you can make the appropriate lifestyle recommendations to eliminate the root cause of your clients’ health concerns.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOUR PRACTICE SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

Until now, there hasn’t been a clear path to create your practice. I’ve invested over $100K just in business training to put together the simplest, most direct path to putting together the business that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. You’ll learn pricing, lab contracts, how to attract clients, and how to practice functional medicine legally in the virtual space. When you join this program, I’ll walk you through everything step-by-step.

DOING THIS ON YOUR OWN FEELS WAY TO RISKY

To be honest, doing this on your own IS too risky. There are so many questions when you get started. You need a seasoned practitioner in your corner to collaborate with, ask for recommendations, gather second and third options, and side-step roadblocks and risks that may get practitioners in trouble. My team and I are here to support you, not to mention the dozens of other clinicians who are present for you as well.

YOU STILL HAVE DEBT & YOU HAVE BILLS TO PAY. SPENDING MORE FEELS SCARY.

Our first step together is to give you a 200% raise. It’s not unrealistic to make $200k-$400k per year as a Certified Functional Medicine Specialist™. I know the steady paycheck feels safe. You’ll start this on the side until you have a sustainable amount of steady income. Then, you’ll slowly cut down hours on your full-time job until you fully replace your income. From there, you have the option to go full-time with your Functional Medicine practice or simply work part-time in both fields while earning much more than you do now.

Bottom line: If you fully commit to this path, money won’t be an issue. Plus, the investment for the program is so reasonable, you’ll make more money back with a few steady clients.

One thing you need to know is... you can’t find all of this support, mentorship, and hard strategy all-in-one-place anywhere except Functional Medicine Business Academy™.

MEET THE CREATOR AND COACH,

DR. CHRISTINE MANUKYAN

 

Hi, I'm Dr. Christine Manukyan! I'm a Functional Medicine Practitioner, Business Coach, Author, Speaker, Top-Rated STORRIE™ Podcast host, and mother of two who shows burned-out medical professionals struggling to balance family, career, and their health to take control of their life and career and create a profitable virtual practice. 

I received PharmD from Nova Southeastern University (Class of 2007 President, Rho Chi, Phi Delta Chi, Phi Lambda Sigma President, FSHP student chapter President) and completed PGY1/PGY2 Health-System Pharmacy Administration Residency and MS in Health-System Pharmacy Administration from The Ohio State University Medical Center.  

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, I spent 13 years in Corporate America as a Clinical Pharmacist with various leadership roles (Regulatory and Compliance Officer, Outpatient Pharmacy Supervisor, Pharmacist-In-Charge at Surgery Center Pharmacy) at Cedars-Sinai.  

After experiencing my own health transformation with Functional Medicine, losing 100+ lbs, and becoming a natural bodybuilding athlete and marathon runner, I found my true calling empowering others to reach their health goals without pharmaceuticals. I've helped more than 300 clients transform their health. 

I'm a frequent speaker on holistic lifestyle choices, creating a virtual business, founder, and entrepreneur mindset, and creating multiple income streams. I've spoken in front of audiences numbering 15,000+ and have been recognized globally for my entrepreneurial achievement and dedication. My magazine features include PharmaSis Magazine for female pharmacist entrepreneurs, health and wellness publications, and I am a BRAINZ Magazine Executive Contributor, including BRAINZ 500 Global recognition.

Today, I'm the Founder of Functional Medicine Business Academy ™, a 12-months program to help other pharmacists and pharmacy students learn how to combine their education and training into a thriving online practice as a Functional Medicine Practitioner.

I'm passionate about helping burnout medical professionals build and scale a profitable virtual practice to have more quality time with their loved ones doing what fulfills their life. I believe everyone deserves a second chance to rewrite their story and become the best version of themselves.  

"I can’t thank my dear coach and friend Dr. Christine Manukyan enough for such comprehensive and deep dive coaching I was given. Not only was I  able to figure out mindset blocks on the way of my transformation, but also gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and hands-on experience on how to run my integrative, Functional Medicine coaching business. I had my first paying client after 4 sessions with her. She is the go-to business and mindset Coach in the Functional Medicine world. Thank you again, Christine!"

Dr. Ani Rostomyan

"When I made the decision to work with Dr. Christine Manukyan with Functional Medicine Business Academy™, I knew it was going to be a life-changing choice. She pushes you to find your soul purpose so that you are focused on how you are going to serve and help others through what you provide in your business. She also educates on how to use social media to promote your company, build your website, set up contracts with labs and medical grade nutraceutical companies, e-commerce, detox protocols, and provides information on how to use numerous other avenues to gain income for your company. She sincerely wants you to succeed and propels you forward by setting timely goals and keeps you accountable. She is a great leader, mentor, inspiration, and I am grateful that I have decided to take a leap of faith with her in helping me accomplish my business goals."

Dr. Tammy Lopez

"Working with Dr. Christine Manukyan over the past 5 months has done nothing short of wonders for my mindset and building out my Functional Medicine Practice. I've learned and incorporated everything she taught me about branding, creating my bio, my website, setting up contracts with different specialty labs, choosing the right type of corporation for my business, etc. She pushes you to take action and is right beside you along the way to give honest feedback and help you create the best virtual practice that speaks to you and to your soul."

Dr. Zsuzsanna Coniglio
