The Psychiatry Redefined Fellowship

Led by renowned functional expert, Dr. James Greenblatt, Psychiatry Redefined is an educational institution offering the most comprehensive and practical online education in precision psychiatry, and functional and integrative medicine for mental health. Enroll in the Fellowship to learn the latest clinical approaches to help your patients finally heal.

Clinical Focus & Structure

Our Fellowship is built around nine essential, science-backed areas of clinical focus that provide the organizational structure for our curriculum, inform our proactive approach to care, and that we see as the overarching theme of integrative and functional medicine for psychiatry. There’s a lot of information on functional medicine available, but through our Fellowship we help you distill the essentials and learn how to apply key concepts in a clear manner. Click each pulsing topic to learn more.

NUTRITIONAL & METABOLIC PSYCHIATRY: Our brain and body cannot function properly without the appropriate nutrients. And nutritional deficiencies, including vitamin D, B12, folate, iron, zinc, magnesium, omega-3 fats and others can all play a detrimental role in brain function. Likewise, many mental health disorders can be caused by imbalances in the body’s metabolism as a result of diet, genetics, and stress. By properly assessing and treating nutritional imbalances and metabolic factors (like insulin resistance and inflammation), symptoms of mental health conditions often improve or resolve.
INFECTIONS: Some infections, such as Lyme disease, streptococcus and clostridium can cause or contribute to mental health problems such as obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, anxiety and depression. While often overlooked, knowing how to assess for and treat chronic infections can be a critical factor in helping patients recover from mental illness.
GENETICS: Genetics play a role in the development of many mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and schizophrenia. Understanding how to assess genetic markers and modify treatment appropriately is a fundamental component of both functional and personalized medicine.
ENVIRONMENTAL MEDICINE: Environmental factors such as exposure to mold and toxins, like heavy metals, plastics and pesticides, among numerous others, can contribute to the development of health problems, including mental health conditions. Toxic compounds are known to have detrimental effects on the brain and nervous system, from causing inflammation to disrupting neurotransmitter function. Identifying and treating toxicities can also play a role in a patient’s recovery from mental illness.
GASTROINTESTINAL MICROBIOME:The gastrointestinal microbiome plays a significant role in both physical and mental health. Through a number of different mechanisms, the brain influences the gut and vice versa. By assessing for and addressing microbiome disturbances, many patients notice improvements in both physical and mental health symptoms.
HORMONES: Hormones, including the sex hormones, thyroid hormones and insulin, can all play a role in the development of mental health disorders. Measuring and treating hormone dysregulation can be another powerful tool on the path to recovery from mental illness.
PSYCHEDELICS: Psychedelics have been shown to be effective in the treatment of some mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. While not a panacea, psychedelics can help to alter the brain’s chemistry and promote neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to change and adapt.
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE TESTING: The core of functional psychiatry is objective laboratory testing that can be used to identify and monitor the underlying causes and factors that contribute to mental health. For example, blood tests can be used to check for nutritional deficiencies, endocrine dysregulation, microbiome disruptions, genetic markers, toxicities, infections and inflammation, all of which can contribute to mental illness. Lab testing can help in both identifying the causes and monitoring a patient’s progress during treatment.
PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS & SIDE EFFECTS: Medication treatments for mental health conditions, while not typically a cure, still have their place. Using medications appropriately when needed can help patients in their recovery. In addition, through the proper application of functional medicine, it is often possible to reduce or eliminate common medication side effects, improving patient compliance.

ENROLLMENT

Now enrolling for the Summer 2024 Fellowship session (July 2024-June 2025).

“This has totally changed the way I practice psychiatry and how I treat patients. It’ll be the best thing that you do as a practitioner.”

Traditional psychiatry focuses on symptom reduction and management. As a result, too many patients are misdiagnosed as treatment-resistant – many never find adequate care and learn to live with debilitating conditions. It’s time to change our approach to mental health care and apply whole-person, precision medicine strategies. It’s time to deliver better patient care.

Through our Functional Medicine Fellowship, you’ll learn precise clinical interventions to help patients finally heal, resolve underlying causes of mental illness, overcome treatment resistance, and move beyond symptom management. When you enroll, you gain a team of support from international industry leaders and peers to guide you in creating more personalized treatment plans to target imbalances, infections, toxins, genetics, and other key biomarkers. We teach patient care based on experience; you’ll learn skills you weren’t taught in medical school and become the go-to expert in your community.

Reignite your passion for medicine and feel good about your practice again. Join a supportive community and discover a path towards the career you’ve always imagined.
