Studies show that over 60% of U.S. adults experience at least 1 gastrointestinal symptom per week. The most common symptoms reported are reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhea and constipation. Together, these disorders account for over 35 million visits to the doctor and over $745 million in healthcare expenditures every year. Yet, for many clients, standard of care approaches to these common gastrointestinal complaints either work to mask the problem or do not provide complete relief.
The goal of the GI Complete Bootcamp course is to provide practitioners with an in-depth understanding of the GI tract so that they feel equipped to find and treat the root causes of common gastrointestinal concerns using a highly successful functional medicine approach.
A bonus - this course comes with a complementary GI Effects Comprehensive test, which allows practitioners to understand their own gut health in a way that truly brings the aspects of this course to life.
Weekly pre-recorded videos that cover the basics of the microbiome, mycobiome, commensals, treatment, and more.
Understand how to interpret a GI Effects stool test from start to finish.
Learn important pearls regarding test prep and protocols for you and your clients
Review both conventional and functional treatment options that includes antibiotics, antifungals, 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.
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 a GI Effects Comprehensive Profile to understand biomarkers of maldigestion, inflammation, metabolism and infection, and what to do when those key areas are imbalanced so that your clients can heal for good.
Whether you’re new to gut health or new to functional GI testing, this course will help give you the foundation and confidence to properly support your patient’s gastrointestinal health.

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.

As the live Q&A classes are not HIPAA compliant and not part of a medical visit, personal medical advice will not be discussed.

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.

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.
