FAQ’S for Joining Practitioners
Q: What type of practitioner can join BLMD?
A: Physicians who want to own a BodyLogicMD franchise must be an MD or DO and wish to focus their scope of medicine to Anti-Aging, BHRT, and Integrative Medicine. Joining practitioners may be board certified or board eligible NPs and PAs, as well as MDs and DOs, however, these opportunities vary by market.
Q: How many days can I anticipate working?
A: All physicians who are a part of BLMD all start with one day at a time. We gradually build our physicians to full time which we consider 3 to 3.5 days. It is always an option should you choose to add more days.
Q: Who can join the BodyLogicMD network of Practitioners?
A: The practitioners of the BodyLogicMD network must be Board Certified or Board Eligible in a clinical field that requires patient contact and in good standing with their associated college. Each practitioner must pass both the oral and written boards of the American Board of Anti-Aging within 1 year of seeing their first patient. All physicians must have completed the Fellowship for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine coursework and earn continuing medical education in the area of anti-aging and functional medicine of no less than 150 credits accrued over a 3 year period. Every practitioner must maintain an active membership with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). The practitioners of the BodyLogicMD network must be Board Certified or Board Eligible in a clinical field that requires patient contact, and be in good standing with their associated college. Each practitioner can start seeing patients with a minimum of Module one completed either online or in person, with the understanding that a total of eight Modules must be completed over the course of 36 months.
Q: What are the advantages of joining a BodyLogicMD franchise?
A: BodyLogicMD is a ‘turnkey’ solution for practitioners who are looking to either own or join an existing practice. All practitioners (whether a franchise owner or joining) start with one day at a time and gradually grow a patient base moving to full-time status- which we consider three days or more. As a joining practitioner, there is no fee or overhead expenses required to join. The opportunity to build your practice and transition into full time, permits for “no” weekends and “no” on call obligations, which makes this an attractive opportunity for the practitioner who truly wants to practice preventative medicine and dedicate more than 15 minutes for each patient visit. Our practitioners are accustomed to one hour initial consults and half hour follow up appointments with each patient. This is a cash based practice, meaning no time constraints with Insurance filings or other insurance hassles. All BodyLogicMD practitioners are a part the most prestigious network of “like minded” medical professionals in the field.
Q: How quickly can I get started?
A: The boarding process can vary depending if you are joining an existing practice or want to open your own practice. It can also depending on the credentialing you need to undergo to legally practice medicine in the state you want to work in. The process for joining is typically 3 months, while the process for opening your own practice can be 3-6 months.
Q: Will I need to relocate?
A: Many of our joining physicians happily commute as well as welcome relocating as an option.
Q: Does joining an existing franchise mean I become part owner?
A: No. However, should the franchisee want to sell their franchise license, the joining physician/s is given first right of refusal to purchase the franchise license. We have had franchises purchased by the existing joining physician.
