The American Board of Functional Medicine (ABFM) is an independent organization in the U.S. that certifies physicians who practice in functional medicine. Board certification is open to licensed physicians who have completed postgraduate education in functional medicine and successfully passed the certification examination; the board defines physicians as holders of the MD, DO, DC, DDS, ND or Ph.D. degrees who practice in healthcare. Certificants are often referred to as Diplomates of the American Board of Functional Medicine (DABFM).[1]


For the period of 2010-2013, Dr. Gayle Stockwell is President. Dr. Dan Paterson is Chairman of the Board. Melanie Garrett is Vice-President and Dr. Patrick Garrett is Immediate Past President.[2]
