Live calls with Julie at 10am PST/1pm EST on February 22, March 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th. All calls are 60 minutes, recorded and will be made accessible to enrolled students. Pre-recorded content also available to watch on-demand.
Research on gastrointestinal health has exploded the last several years due to the importance of understanding the health of the microbiome in relation to overall systemic health. In fact, the microbiome plays a such a key role in digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions, that many practitioners and patients often start their journey to wellness with comprehensive stool testing.
The goal of this bootcamp is to provide practitioners with a deep dive into gastrointestinal health through the lens of the GI-Map stool test. Listen to pre-recorded lectures and live Q&A’s all about pathogenic and viral pathogens, H. pylori, commensal bacteria, opportunistic, inflammatory, and autoimmune-linked bacteria, fungi and yeast, parasites, and intestinal health markers including how to take a root cause approach to treatment.
A bonus - this course comes with a complementary GI-Map test, which allows practitioners to understand their own gut health in a way that truly brings the aspects of this course to life. $400.00 Value. Self-order only. Must have a NPI & qualified license to place a GI-Map test order through Rupa Health. Not applicable with Physician Services. US only, not valid in NY NJ Rl.
Weekly pre-recorded videos that cover the basics of the microbiome, mycobiome, commensals, opportunistic microbes, gut inflammation, treatment, and more
Understand how to interpret a GI-Map stool test from start to finish.
Learn important clinical pearls regarding the test results by section and the appropriate protocols for you and your patients
Review both conventional and functional treatment options that includes antibiotics, anti-fungals, herbals, and more.
Actual case studies are reviewed in both the pre-recorded lectures and live classes to help with practitioner knowledge and application.
Cases are reviewed and questions are answered in real-time as a group to help you better support patient outcomes. These are recorded live and will be uploaded in the class each week.
Additional resources to use in your clinic and with your clients in the form of research studies, books, magazine articles, Rupa live class links, and more are provided.
This 6-week bootcamp will walk you through the different sections of the GI-Map test to understand biomarkers of function, maldigestion, inflammation, and infection, and what to do when those key areas are imbalanced so that your patients can understand what’s going on with their gut health and begin to heal.
Whether you’re new to gut health or new to functional GI testing, this GI-Map course will help give you the foundation and confidence to properly support your patient’s gastrointestinal health.

The GI-MAP (Microbial Assay Plus) is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing. It relies exclusively on quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more, by targeting the specific DNA of the organisms tested.
Almost every patient can benefit from a GI-MAP gut health assessment. Some patients are looking to achieve optimal health, while other patients have been chronically ill and frustrated without a diagnosis for years.
In order to use a coupon/discount associated with a Rupa University bootcamp, you MUST be qualified to sign up for a Rupa Health account. This means you need an NPI number, the correct license type to order the lab, and can not be ordering in NY, NJ, RI, or internationally. In addition, coupons are for self orders only and may not be used on patients, staff, or family.
You can still sign up for the bootcamp as a health care practitioner but unfortunately, Rupa can not handle tests ordered in those states EVEN if you can order the test from the lab directly. The cost for the bootcamp is the same.
Unfortunately, at this time we cannot support the use of coupons with Physician Services. Practitioners must have a NPI & qualified license to use the coupon.
No, Rupa University does not offer degrees or any form of accreditations. Our mission is to provide affordable education by bringing in world class experts to teach about lab testing.
Most likely! Right now, the goal of Rupa is to offer a variety of bootcamps throughout the year to help you understand different topics and tests at a tactical level so you can immediately incorporate what you learn with your practice.
After you are signed up for the bootcamp and have created your account, you can login at app.rupauniversity.com!
As the live Q&A classes are not HIPAA compliant and not part of a medical visit, personal medical advice will not be discussed.
Every week during the bootcamp, there will be a 60min live Q&A webinar where you can ask questions in the chat.
The pre-recorded classes are a variety of lengths from 10 minutes to 60 minutes.
The live classes are always 60 minutes long.
It will be a mix. There will be more foundational level videos to help set the stage if you are newer and more advanced level clinical pearls, videos, or questions answered during the live Q&A sessions.
Yes! There will be a mix of foundational classes to help get you introduced to the topic up to more advanced clinical pearls and information that build on each other. The live class Q&A sessions will also be a mix of beginning to advanced information. The goal is to have everyone who goes through the bootcamp feeling more confident about ordering and understanding the test.
No! Feel free to sign-up and jump in to learn all about this lab and topic!
We do not — our mission with Rupa University is to bring in industry experts to create extremely high quality affordable education that centers around lab work. The goal of this education is to help practitioners deepen their understanding about the root cause of illness, and to provide actionable information that they can take into their practice.
Sadly no. There are many rules associated with CME credits that prevent us from teaching about actionable products that are a core part of our live classes and bootcamps. Our education is designed to level up practitioners and give you actionable tools to become more successful.

Protocols are often (but not always) discussed in our bootcamps. A core part of lifestyle medicine is treating the individual, having a “standard protocol” is not always the right approach but can often be a useful starting point for learning about a disease or condition. Both functional and conventional approaches will be covered such as supplements and medications commonly in use.
The live classes are a free hour long weekly webinar you can sign up for as a practitioner on the Rupa platform. They are generally quick introductions to a lab, topic, health concern, or research by an expert that varies every week.
The bootcamp is a paid 4-6 week in-depth training that involve pre-recorded videos and live Q&A classes to help you understand a particular topic and test much more in-depth from a practical and tactical point of view.
At this time, there are not additional discount codes that can be used outside of the Rupa University Bootcamp test code for qualified practitioners to use on themself.
