Is there an online location to find reading recommendations and discussion to prepare for the course?

Reading recommendations and discussions to prepare attendees will be conducted at the Functional Neurology Seminars Facebook group for registrants (the link will be emailed when you register). Pre-Course material is also located at the WEBSITE.

Where can I post questions about the course?

You can ask questions about and discuss the course material on the Functional Neurology Seminars Members-Only Facebook group for registrants (the link will be emailed when you register).

Each module is independent of the others and does not require attendance of previous modules. However, attending the courses in sequence can provide greater understanding of the overall material.

How does this program differ from other programs?

Functional Neurology Seminars is the first functional neurology program to blend neurological rehabilitation with diet, nutrition, laboratory analysis, electrodiagnostic pharmacology, and lifestyle in a multi-disciplinary approach.

FNS is a structured program that provides detailed and referenced course notes, flow charts, and research sources.

FNS registrants can access program materials for two years after registration. FNS will conduct pre-course preparation and post-course review on the private “Members Only – Functional Neurology Seminars” Facebook group open to paid registrants only.
