Patients often seek functional medicine options when conventional approaches fail them. For these patients, you can’t just try things at the level of “I heard this herb was good for asthma…” You need to understand what’s under the hood, identify underlying patterns of dysfunction, and apply targeted solutions. Most of those mechanisms, most of the targets, most of the solutions, are fundamentally immunological. So, you need to know the immunology to navigate that world effectively.
Mastering Immunological Mechanisms
Typical clinical practice norms lag the research by ten to fifteen years. Patients with complex chronic illness can’t wait. They need a clinical approach based on emerging research, skillfully applied by clinicians who have the knowledge to handle their cases. The key drivers underlying most disease processes… inflammation, autoimmunity, infection, GI issues, food reactions, tissue degeneration, environmental factors, etc., are all either inherently immunological or are powerfully influenced by immunological mechanisms. Cogence Immunology gives you mastery of these key drivers, so you can understand your patients’ problems with far greater insight, manage their cases with far greater skill, and share with your patients the fulfillment of seeing them improve.
Learning Using a “Flipped Classroom” Model
Cogence Immunology uses a “flipped classroom” model. Instead of paying for travel and hotels to hear a canned presentation, then going home and wondering what it meant, you study the lecture videos on your own, rewinding and reviewing if you want to hear something more than once, and accumulating the questions that inevitably arise. Whenever you want, you attend the weekly live webinars, where Dr. Yanuck answers your questions and discusses the material. Lecture videos at home + posting questions and cases in the online forum + Q&A and case webinars in the online classroom = flipped classroom. It’s more efficient, less expensive, and you do it all from your own desk, at your own pace.
