Kelly K McCann, MD, MPH & TM
While some physicians are now adapting to an integrative and functional approach, Dr. McCann began her career in medicine with the intention of providing holistic, patient-centered care. Throughout her pre-medical training and continuing through medical school and residency, she explored acupuncture, herbs, meditation, energy medicine, spirituality and massage, while simultaneously excelling in her conventional medical studies. She has been practicing medicine since 2000.
Dr. McCann received a B.A. in Music from Brown University and a Master’s in Library Science from University at Albany. She went on to receive her Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) and simultaneously earned a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) in Tropical Medicine (TM) at Tulane University in New Orleans. She completed both an Internal Medicine residency at Banner Samaritan Medical Center and a Pediatrics residency at Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, AZ.
Dr. McCann practiced medicine at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine where she worked and trained with renowned Andrew Weil, M.D., as one of 35 distinguished fellows in residence throughout the world. The residential fellowship provided the curriculum for Dr. Weil’s current online fellowship, which now trains hundreds of practitioners, and this unique group of residential fellows lead the field of integrative medicine today.
After completion of the Fellowship, she continued her pursuit of knowledge. Dr. McCann became certified in medical acupuncture through the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture, studied environmental medicine and chelation with Dr. Walter Crinnion and biotoxins with Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker. She also attends numerous conferences annually including ILADS – International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society meetings, Membrane Medicine meetings regarding the PK protocol and other nutritional and integrative medicine trainings. Dr. McCann recently became certified by the Institute of Functional Medicine completing a rigorous program in functional medicine. Notable physicians in the functional medicine arena include Dr. Mark Hyman, Jeffrey Bland, PhD and David Perlmutter, MD. Functional medicine addresses the root causes of chronic illness through a whole-system approach to medicine.
