Is your practice not going exactly as you pictured?
If so, you're not alone.
Functional Medicine has become a confusing, frustrating experience for well-meaning practitioners and patients everywhere.
We’ve spoken to practitioners of all types, from all over the world, and before working with us, they all struggle with the same three things.
First of all, there’s information overload.
What tests should you run? What supplements should you recommend? Where do you start with a complex patient?
Then, there’s conflicting advice.
One expert says this, another says that. Who do you listen to? You need facts if you’re going to practice with confidence.
Last (but not least), you always feel like you're lacking something - money, time, or a solid understanding...
Getting patients, knowing what to charge, having a solid business strategy that serves your patients and fits your lifestyle - where were those classes in school?
Hey, Overwhelmed Health Practitioner, We Hear You.
You’ve tried to do it all – reading all the books, listening to all the podcasts, earning all the certificates, joining all the programs…and if you had a dollar for every Google + Pubmed search you’ve ever done, you’d be a millionaire.
And that’s just the functional medicine side of things. What about everything you need to know to run a successful business – things like how to get more patients, how to structure your services, and how to stop providing free advice so that you’re practice is actually profitable.
It’s enough to make any smart, well-meaning practitioner say FORGET IT.
But you have the potential to help so many people, if you just had the right tools and support at your disposal.
We can help.
It's what we're known for. See what other practitioners have to say about working with us.
Who are we anyway? And how do we solve the biggest problem facing practitioners today?
We’re Drs. Bryan and Julie Walsh. After graduating from medical school, we struggled big time. We thought the solution was to attend seminars, listen to the "gurus", and hire marketers and business coaches...but what we found was the opposite. We made it our mission to figure out how to succeed in Functional Medicine and as soon as we did, we knew we had to share it with others.
We’ve taken EVERYTHING we’ve learned in our collective 40 years in the industry and created Clinician's Code™ to support you in building the Functional Medicine practice you’ve always wanted.
A full-scale digital experience where unrivaled Functional Medicine education meets individualized mentorship. Apply what you learn to your real-life cases with the personal support of Drs. Walsh and our interactive community.
We (quite literally) come along side you to help you improve your clinical outcomes, grow your practice, and therefore deepen your impact.Apply Now
Take a look at what some of our practitioners have to say.
This is just a tiny fraction of the feedback we’ve received for Clinician's Code™... keep reading for more.
"You won't regret this program because it will only make you better."
"Clinician's Code™ has been so extremely helpful in giving me confidence. Working with Drs. Bryan and Julie Walsh through case studies and the amazing information in their online courses has provided me with the tools to become a great practitioner who isn't just giving standard protocols for a condition, but instead understands how to help each client with their bio-individual issues." - Stephanie E., BS, CNS, NTP
"It is invaluable to be able to consult on cases with Drs. Walsh."
"Making the decision to be a part of the mentorship program is one of the best ones I've made as a practitioner - not just from a case analysis perspective, but also from a business perspective. It is invaluable to be able to consult on cases with Drs. Walsh, who are committed to scientifically based, biochemically individualized solutions. Having seasoned professionals who are committed to my personal growth is a tremendous 'shot in the arm' that I'm grateful for daily." - Jan T., Integrative Nutrition
If your practice isn't going according to plan, it's not you, it's what you've been taught.
You got the degree. You've been to the seminars, listened to the podcasts, attended the summits, opted in for all the webinars...
But you still don't feel like you're getting it quite right.
You've even went straight to the source - Pubmed. And after many rabbit trails and bookmarked studies, you have more questions than answers.
One expert says this and another says that. Who do you listen to? Which “expert” can you actually rely on? How can you possibly piece together all the conflicting ideas?
Maybe you even paid thousands for a mentorship program. And while it technically delivered information, what they taught hasn't translated into any measurable clinical success.
When patients come in with a myriad of symptoms, you still find yourself a little lost.
- Which tests should I run?
- How can I identify the root cause?
- Which protocol should I give?
- Am I truly helping the people that I started my practice to help?
Functional Medicine has become a confusing, frustrating experience for practitioners everywhere.
The good news is there's another way - a smarter way - to practice Functional Medicine.
You don't have to use protocols because someone else told you to - you can think through any case that walks through your door, with confidence.
You don't have to run thousands of dollars in functional medicine tests to give your patients answers - you can become highly adept at discerning between what tests they need and what tests they don't.
You don't have to prescribe massive amounts of supplements - you can develop the know-how to identify what supplements are going to best help your patients.
You don't have to struggle or hire an expensive business coach to get your practice off the ground - you can build a reliable system for generating income while still providing an high-quality service to your patients.
You don't have to perform on social media everyday and pretend to like it even when you don't- you can build a sophisticated business that is authentic, intentional, and representative of your values and mission.
Clinician’s Code is different from anything else out there because of its unique three-part framework that covers everything you need to know to build a successful, thriving practice.
- Evidence-based, up-to-date, educational functional medicine content at your fingertips
- Individualized expert support & mentorship on all of your questions and cases

Expert Help in Your Pocket
You weren't meant to practice in a silo. Being able to ask questions, get clarification, and hear feedback is critical when building a successful clinical practice.
In our interactive community forum you can post cases and ask for clarification on any topic. We weigh in on what to do, which tests and supplements to run, and how to interpret results.
As soon as you join, your first step is our intake process and a 2:1 coaching call so we can get to know you and begin our partnership.

Live Monthly Q+A Calls
Have you ever been on a zoom call that is a total waste of time? Us too! That's why we never do that.
Our calls are designed to help you get in-depth answers, see our process, learn new clinical insights, and come together for quality human interaction.
If you can't make it, no problem. You can submit your questions in advance. We record and time-stamp our answers so you can easily watch and re-watch at your convenience.
When you don’t know how to run a business, you’ll have a much harder time building a profitable practice. You’ve likely learned that the hard way already. Your business is nothing without patients. That's why we don't just teach you what to do once the patients are in your office, we teach you how to get them in the door.
We help you figure out your story, your niche, your messaging, your offer, and your profit strategy... without exhausting, inauthentic activities that lead to practitioner burnout.

Explore the Clinician’s Code Curriculum. Instant Access, Endless Insights.
Cellular Health Assessment
Become skilled in how to accurately evaluate the cellular health of your patients and confidently know where to start with every patient case with our distinctive methodology of health assessment, The Cell Blueprint™. You will get our intake, assessment, and questionnaire to easily integrate this system into your practice. Our done-for-you presentation slides, patient quiz, email templates, and marketing strategy make it easy to use this system to grow your practice right away.
Our Proprietary Patient Process
We unveil our methodology—a matchless, systematic path to navigate patients through nutritional and functional medicine. What sets us apart is our approach, which predates the usual starting point of personalized medicine chosen by most practitioners. This crucial yet frequently unnoticed step reduces unnecessary effort, time, and expenses tied to testing and speculation in clinical practice. Prepare for a revolutionary shift.
Functional Lab Interpretation
Getting the diagnosis right is a game-changer for consistent success in your clinical work, and that starts with the tests to run in your practice. So many practitioners end up spending precious time and money on tests that not only don't help but are scientifically inaccurate. We cover all the big ones – like adrenal, hormones, hair, and stool tests, along with the organic acid test – so you never have to wonder what to run (and not run) again.
Functional Blood Chemistry Interpretation
Become invaluable as you study the industry's leading blood chemistry course. Dr. Walsh will walk you through biomarker physiology, evidence-based reference ranges, nutritional reasons for abnormal markers, the updated science on biomarkers, and so much more. You also have access to our extensive biochemistry and physiology course modules to support your learning and deeply understand lab findings.
Practice Management and Business Strategy
You can have all the knowledge in the world, but if you can’t sell it, you can’t make a living from it. To transform it into a thriving business, you must connect with your ideal clients, speak their language, and provide an excellent experience while aligning with your lifestyle and income goals. We specialize in identifying the gaps in your business and help you develop a model that works.
A Goldmine Library of Cutting-Edge Functional Medicine Topics
Dive into a wealth of instant knowledge that you’ve never heard before upon joining this program. Explore topics spanning SIBO, Fatty Liver, Anemia, Female Hormones, Well-being, Dormant infections, and more. From industry misconceptions on vital topics like PCOS, Vitamin D supplementation, T3 to T4 conversion, iodine testing, minerals, and so much more. Uncover insights on gut health, hypochlorhydria, and trending subjects including Homocysteine and Nicotinamide Riboside supplementation. It’s all yours for the learning!
Theory is one thing, but application is another. We fill in the gaps that most learning experiences do not, by helping you implement your new functional medicine knowledge into practice in a way that works for you. Practitioners find this portion of the program invaluable as they solidify their knowledge through application and case management, all with our full support.
Learn how to safely and effectively detoxify patients using the world’s first truly scientifically-based detoxification protocol. Utilize this program to build your practice while leveraging your time. You'll learn how to not only reach new patients but to revive those who are already on your list but haven't scheduled with you for a while.
Cutting-Edge Glucose Dysregulation Management
Get ready to supercharge your practice with some serious glucose expertise! Many of the models used to assess, diagnose, and treat various types of glucose dysregulation are completely outdated. We'll help you elevate your practice with a comprehensive, up-to-date understanding of glucose dysregulation including how to detect diabetes well in advance, the intricacies of reactive hypoglycemia, and much more.
Imagine how you’ll feel a few months from now when you’ve built the practice you’ve always wanted…
- You feel confident in your clinical decisions rather than confused and second-guessing yourself.
- You have testimonial after testimonial of clients who say you’ve “changed their life”.
- You have a waitlist of clients who can’t wait to work with you because of your excellent reputation (maybe you even need to hire a staff!)
- You have streamlined systems and processes in place so that you can effectively and efficiently serve your ideal clients.
- You are truly serving people in the most impactful way.

Meet the Founders
We’ve taken everything we’ve learned in our collective 40 years in the industry and created Clinician's Code™ to support you in building the Functional Medicine practice you’ve always wanted.
Dr. Bryan Walsh
Co-Founder & CMO, Metabolic Fitness
Dr. Walsh has been studying human physiology and nutrition for over 25 years and has been educating others in health for 20 of those years. When he isn’t teaching, he spends his time pouring over the latest research and synthesizing his findings into practical information for clinicians to use in practice. Dr. Walsh is best known for his expertise in biochemistry and human physiology, which allows him to (happily) dismantle the myths and misconceptions in the functional medicine industry and replace them with the truth. His work is most often described as, “the education you always wanted, but never received".
Fun fact: He developed the industry's first evidence-based optimal reference ranges.
Dr. Julie Walsh
Co-Founder & CEO, Metabolic Fitness
Dr. Julie Walsh, while formerly trained in Naturopathic Medicine, quickly realized that without a solid understanding of business and marketing, the practice was never going to become a sustainable, profitable business. After recognizing there is as much misinformation in the business and marketing space as there is in the functional medicine space she knew what she had to do – become an expert at how to run a practice like a business. While she thinks it’s tacky to wave around bank balances and dollar amounts, let’s just say she took Metabolic Fitness from nothing to something beyond what she ever dreamed. Now, she shares everything she knows with clinicians looking to do the same.
Fun fact: She does all of this while raising 6 amazing children.
We know you're busy, so we'll cut to the chase.
Clinician's Code™ is a full-scale digital experience where unrivaled Functional Medicine education meets individualized mentorship. Apply what you learn to your real-life cases with the personal support of Drs. Walsh and our interactive community of clinicians.
If you're a motivated health professional who wants to build a thriving practice with the best results for your clients, you're in the right place.
"Since Julie helped me restructure my packages and offerings, I've had 16 clients sign up for my highest tier package in just months. Within the first month of Clinician’s Code, it had paid for itself.
I went from “I need more clients” to “What do I do with all these clients?!”
"With this program, I KNOW I am plugged into current information and challenging my own thinking about how I am evaluating the health and wellness status of my clients and my recommended nutritional therapies. All for the betterment of my clients. I am thrilled to be learning from people who value this as much as I do."
"This program was AMAZING! I have learned so much from reviewing academic content and figuring out how to APPLY the knowledge to the clients I encounter.The Walsh's go above and beyond in their clinical support, expertise and business-building activities. They are genuine, real people who have a passion for helping others."
"The value is amazing. And what is at the heart of it is the expertise of two amazing doctors who are straightforward, objective, and compassionate. It's a rare and incredible package, and the wealth of knowledge is actually kind of nuts."
"Why do I love Clinician's Code? Very simple. It's accurate. I don't have to guess where this information came from. I don't have to say “who on the internet is answering a question because they took a 3-month course?” All of the information is scientific, factual, up-to-date, and something I can rely on. That is invaluable."
"You will not be disappointed with your decision to join. I felt lost, but this program has boosted my confidence in ways that I didn't think possible. "

When is the Right Time to Do This Mentorship?
There are more people than ever before looking for answers about their health. They’re searching (often desperately) for competent practitioners to help them.
At the same time, the number of practitioners grows daily (translation: your competition isn’t getting any smaller).
Each day that passes is another day that:
- Patients are finding another professional to help them with their goals
- You aren’t getting answers to the questions you have about your current cases that you’re stuck on
- The lack of systems in your practice is leaving you overworked and underpaid
- The burnout and frustration continue to grow as you continually search for answers through Google, the seminar circuit, and countless podcasts.
