Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine at UWS

The Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine (MS-HNFM) program is offered as a collaborative endeavor between UWS and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the organization that founded and developed many functional medicine concepts in use today. University of Western States is the only institution where you can obtain an accredited Master of Science degree in human nutrition and functional medicine. 

The program is 100% online and eligible for financial aid.

Functional medicine is a science-based, patient-centered and systems-oriented approach to helping people achieve and maintain excellent health. This is accomplished primarily through natural methods, with diet and nutrition as a central focus. It is a forefront model for health care practice that seeks to address the causes of disease and dysfunction rather than suppressing symptoms.
