The principal aim of the Society is to promote the study and good practice of allergy, environmental and nutritional medicine for the benefit of the public. These interconnected disciplines play a major part in Ecological Medicine, which is known under the term Functional Medicine in the United States. Ecological Medicine offers an approach to diagnosis, prevention and to non-toxic treatment that is relevant to all medical practice, and have proved particularly useful in patients with many very common chronic conditions that have not responded to conventional treatments.
New Foundation Level I
The Foundation Level training consists of two Modules, each Module containing eight video lectures and accompanying slides and reference notes. Lecture length varies, but they generally last from 60 - 90 minutes each. In total two Modules represent maximum 30 hours of training. The online learning modules allow you to view lectures exactly as they were delivered at a face-to-face course, complete with questions from the floor and panel discussions. It's the closest thing to being in the classroom, except that you will be able to do this from the comfort of your own computer, tablet or Smartphone.
You must become a member of the BSEM to take part and once you sign up and commit to the training, you will have three months to access each Module (i.e. six months in total for both Modules). You are required to undertake several activities to obtain a certificate of completion. These activities include prescribed reading, an online reflective journal, writing a case-study and a short online exam.
