Education - MAPS
THE MAPS PROGRAM

The level of mastery that MAPS fellows (FMAPS) achieve in the field of complex pediatric conditions makes them among the best-prepared practitioners in this field.

The MAPS program was originally developed by Dan Rossignol, M.D., FAAFP (with input from leading physicians, scientists and researchers) to address the unique issues that play a huge role in the symptoms we describe as autism. Since its creation in 2012, MAPS has morphed to involve all of integrative pediatrics (including ADHD, other neurodevelopmental delays, asthma, autoimmunity, gut issues, immune dysfunction, and many other chronic pediatric conditions). MAPS has also expanded to address the unique issues faced by these children as the transition into adulthood.

With the addition of James Neuenschwander, M.D., Anju Usman-Singh, M.D., Nancy O’Hara, M.D, Liz Mumper, M.D and John Gaitanis, MD, MAPS is now dedicated to providing the fundamental integrative training that Dr. Rossignol had envisioned along with a commitment to providing the most up to date therapies for the issues our kids face. Each conference is filled with both the basic scientific research into these therapies along with the practical translation of therapies into practice. Our goal is to provide training to produce practitioners that are able to improve the outcome of our childrens’ health.

Membership and Training

Attendees to the MAPS conference will get the opportunity to enroll in cutting-edge medical workshops and ACM courses and earn CME credits as well as a CME certificate.

Mentoring

This conference will be attended by industry veterans and thought leaders who will provide mentorship to the attendees by delivering keynote lectures, moderating panel discussions, and teaching courses.

Practice Management

At the conference, the role of MAPS is day-to-day clinical practice will be highlighted and discussed through a series of sessions and case presentations.

Membership & Fellowship

Membership is for medical professionals who wish to take advantage of MAPS’ education, conferences, clinician directory and other benefits.

Fellowship is for physicians who want to be at the forefront of treatment of medical issues in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and related chronic complex conditions. Fellows receive specialized education, mentorship and research as part of MAPS.

Road To Fellowship

Your journey to become an FMAPS (Fellow of MAPS) begins with joining us at an in-person conference and completing the Foundations of MAPS course. Next, you would register for a membership with MAPS.

Once a member, you will gain access to our online education portal. This portal contains the 5 ACM (Advanced Clinical Matrix) courses that are required for Fellowship. These courses consist of; Immunology, Neurology, Metabolism, GI & Nutrition, and Environmental Medicine. Next, you would attend another in-person conference and complete your final course, MAPS in Clinical Practice. This is our most interactive course with all-day case studies presented by MAPS Fellows.

At this point, you would then apply for Mentorship with one (or two) of our brilliant Faculty and work beside them for 10 hours as a mentee.

After mentorship is complete and your mentor confirms, you will be welcomed into the MAPS Fellowship- FMAPS!

  • Complete Foundations of MAPS course at a In -Person MAPS Conference Pass test
  • Complete 5 more ACMs in ourEducation Portal (Membership Required) Pass test on ACMs
  • Complete final ACM, MAPS in Clinical Practice at another In -Person MAPS Conference

MedMAPS hosts CME conferences to help medical professionals understand, explore, and share the underlying concepts and findings associated with integrative pediatrics and also those that have outgrown the pediatric label. Our MAPS conference schedule consists of three days of in depth education. Day one will host 3 tracks for you to choose from; Foundations of MAPS (suggested for all first time attendees), Innovations of Integrative Pediatrics, and MAPS in Clinical Practice (our most interactive course containing clinical case studies from some of the best in the field). Day 2 and 3 will be our Plenary Sessions.

We will discuss the science and research behind the most widely seen chronic conditions and syndromes along with the practical solutions we can offer our patients.
