While the average length to complete the fellowship is 18 months, and our educational advisors recommend finishing within 2 years, the program can be completed at any pace which suits the fellow best.

Hear From Our Fellows

"I now have a completely different view of health. Being a pharmacist I was immersed in pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, and biochemistry of medications and how it would affect the body, but that is just one aspect of health. Now it is like putting it all together."

Zoom Heaton, RPh., CDE

"A4M is truly the BEST continuing medical education I've ever done and worth every penny. It has made such a huge impact on how I practice."

Lauren Athena, MS, RD, CSSD

"This training to me is just a complete medical education redefined and retrained. If any doctor has not had these trainings, I dare to say, he/she is lacking in many things that can be offered. My patient base is swelling by the day because of these new approaches I have been taught in A4M."

Ayodele Ogunjobi, MBBS, FRACGP, MPH

"Thanks to A4M I changed the course of my career and I am now living perhaps one of the greatest professional satisfactions ever since. I have truly seen how my patients' lives are changing to better and how this inspires and brings other patients to me."

Ioana Berciu, MD

"Medicine is always advancing and as physicians, we have to consistently stay informed and knowledgeable. Anti-Aging Medicine is the most important investment in future health."

Christine Bishara, MD

"This education gives you more tools to work in directions you did not know possible. This education will change you as a healthcare provider, that is a guarantee."

Veronica Chavis, PA

"Without A4M I wouldn't be able to do what I do (and I'd probably be another burned out, disillusioned doctors look for a way out of medicine.) Instead I love what I do."

Debra Matthew, MD
