After experiencing the transformative powers of this medicine firsthand, Lisa set out with a vision to change healthcare through her work. She joins us on this episode of The FM Shift to share her journey and talk about the work her firm is doing to support the functional medicine movement. Prepare for Growth When COVID first started, there was a drop in jobs for functional medicine providers. But those jobs are coming back, and in August we were back at equilibrium with August 2019. In October 2020, there is nothing but opportunity in the functional medicine field, and patient demand is going to be driving business now more than ever. There is also a group of doctors that has seen traditional medicine completely fail them during this crisis, so they are migrating toward our movement after witnessing the effectiveness of functional medicine. The industry is booming right now, so functional medicine providers should do everything in their power to prepare for growth. Build a Team That Aligns With Your Vision One of the ways functional medicine providers can prepare their practices for growth is by learning how to navigate the new hiring field in the post-COVID climate. Go digital with your hiring process. Position your practice to stand out and attract a deeper talent pool. Learn how to properly vet prospective employees so you can put an end to the revolving door of staff members at your practice. All of these things will help set you up for success by making sure you’re ready to take on every new opportunity with a reliable team behind you.
