FAQs

We answer the most common questions we get from practitioners.

Coupons

I practice in NY, NJ, or RI, can I still use the coupon/discount for the test as part of the bootcamp?

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.

Do I qualify for a coupon/discount?

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.

Live Classes

Are the live classes recorded?

For both the free live classes, AND the live Q&A classes as part of the bootcamps, they are all recorded and sent out to the students afterwards.

Bootcamps

Does Rupa University offer degrees or accreditations?

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.

I’m not able to take this bootcamp now due to timing, will you offer it again in the future?

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.

Where can I access the bootcamp once I am signed up?

After you are signed up for the bootcamp and have created your account, you can login at app.rupauniversity.com!

Will I be able to ask personal medical questions in the live Q&A about my results?

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

How will I be able to ask questions to the bootcamp instructor?

Every week during the bootcamp, there will be a 60min live Q&A webinar where you can ask questions in the chat.

How long are the pre-recorded videos and the live Q&A classes?

The pre-recorded classes are a variety of lengths from 10 minutes to 60 minutes.

The live classes are always 60 minutes long.

I’m using this test in my practice but would like to learn more, will the classes teach advanced information?

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.

I’m new to functional/integrative medicine, will this bootcamp help?

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.

Are there pre-requisites I need to take to sign up for the bootcamp?

No! Feel free to sign-up and jump in to learn all about this lab and topic!

Does Rupa University offer certifications or other credentials?

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.

Are there CME credits for bootcamps or live classes?

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.

Will you have access to the presentations and materials after the bootcamp?

Yes! You will have access to all of the presentations and materials associated with a bootcamp for up to 12 months after the start date.

Can I get a refund?

As long as you haven’t used the coupon or discount, you may receive a refund up until the day the bootcamp begins.

When is the deadline for signing up?

You are welcome to sign up all the way until the day the bootcamp begins.

Are patients/clients allowed to take these bootcamps?

Sadly no, the Rupa University bootcamps are for healthcare practitioners only.

I don’t have a NPI number, can I still join the bootcamp or live class?

Yes! You can still attend a bootcamp or live class no matter your license type or NPI number. You just wont be able to use the coupon.

I don’t live in the United States, can I still join a bootcamp or live class?

Yes you can still join a bootcamp or live class no matter what country you are from as a healthcare practitioner! You won’t be able to use the coupon or discount, but you can still attend the class. Unfortunately, there is not a price reduction if you can not use the coupon.

Do you cover exact protocols as part of your bootcamps?

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.

What is the difference between a “ free live class” and the bootcamps?

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.

Are other discount codes available I can use for being part of a group or organization?

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.

Rupa Platform

I’m new to Rupa, will there be any information about how to use the Rupa platform, the dashboard or a demo?

Yes, absolutely! There will be linked videos all about Rupa plus, you can always sign up for a free live demonstration with an onboarding manager on how to use the Rupa platform.
