Sara DeFrancesco, ND

Episode #24

New Model Week: Naturopathic Medicine

Whilst at Naturopathic Medical School, Dr. Sara DeFrancesco realized there weren’t many options for NDs emerging from school. Either become an employee on salary (making little impact on her student loan debt) or take a position working for another doctor and lose a large percentage of her earnings disappear. Was there another way?

So, Dr. DeFrancesco created a new path and a new practice, called Thriving Force Natural Medicine. She has learned from a diverse groups of organizations, not only other providers with more business savvy, but also some of our work at the Functional Forum. We are excited to feature young doctors looking to break the mold and attract the top graduates into integrative medicine.

On this podcast you will learn

  • The systemic problems of business training for doctors
  • The top things that Dr. DeFrancesco has learned along the way
  • Empowering news for those looking to follow in her footsteps
