What We Fund

Gilly’s Gift is committed to supporting the training of medical professionals and students in integrated or holistic medicine and currently offers the following opportunities:

Gilly’s Gift offers bursary funding to medical students and doctors towards the cost of IFM online courses including Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP) and Advanced Practice Modules (APMs). Applications should be made to mail@gillysgift.org.

PLM has been successfully run with good support by Clinical Education for a number of years. It has now been relaunched as an online course by Practice Unbound and Gilly’s Gift is offering 50% grants to medical students. Please click here for information on how to apply.                      

For some years Gilly’s Gift has provided bursary funding to doctors and students towards the cost of attending Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP Europe), an Institute for Functional Medicine course presented by Clinical Education.

Gilly’s Gift provided funding towards the development of the BHMA’s new course in holistic healthcare, The Holistic Practitioner. The course is CPD certified and membership to the BHMA offers registration at a reduced rate. Please visit BHMA for further information.

NCIM is increasing its educational offering to run a series of short courses in Integrative Medicine. Gilly’s Gift will be providing 50% grants for the ‘IM Bitesize’ courses to successful applicants. Please email education@ncim.org.uk to apply.

  • Travel grants

We offer travel grants to medical students for their electives so that they can experience integrated medicine practices not readily available in the UK. Grants are typically £500 and applications should be made to mail@gillysgift.org.

Please note, in keeping with our charity’s main objective, Gilly’s Gift will only consider applications for electives that have a strong focus on Integrative Medicine as described on our website.

If there is a learning opportunity you are interested in that we don’t have listed here, please contact us at mail@gillysgift.org.
