Dr. Daniel Kalish is the founder of the Kalish Institute, an online training program dedicated to building Functional Medicine practices. Since 2006, the Kalish Institute has helped develop practice models for more than 1,000 practitioners worldwide. In 2017, Dr. Kalish partnered with The Institute for Functional Medicine to create “My Practice Plan,” an online training program. The course curriculum centers around the development of business skills to assist doctors with practical implementation. This collaborative project between the Kalish Institute and IFM focuses on a heart-centered, hands-on approach to designing an ideal practice plan and is intended to address the lack of practice management instruction available in the Functional Medicine arena.
Dr. Kalish received his B.A. in physiology and psychology from Antioch College and completed his chiropractic degree at Life West. He studied at the University of London and conducted research with biochemist Dr. Robin Monroe at Cambridge University. His educational pursuits led him to mentor with renowned psychiatrist R.D. Lang, as well as John R. Lee, MD, a pioneer in the use of progesterone. More recently, Dr. Kalish proudly served as an advisor to the Honorable Patrick Kennedy and participated in the first One Mind For Research Conference where 200 of the nation’s top neuroscientists gathered to promote research on brain disorders.
