There are a number of ways that someone can become a medical intuitive, depending on the area of practice in which someone intends to work. Medical intuitives can offer alternative medical therapies, complementary medicine in conjunction with a traditionally trained physician, or straight conventional medicine with an intuitive twist, with a focus on treating the patient's whole body instead of just the symptoms. There are also a number of different ways to approach a career as a medical intuitive.

Some people train by working with practicing medical intuitives. Intuitives use a variety of techniques to gather information about their clients and to use this information to diagnose and treat disease. Intuitives can focus on different areas of practice such as energy healing, where the treatment modality is based in a belief that medical problems can be attributed to energy imbalances. Apprenticing with a working intuitive gives people an opportunity to work with patients, see someone at work, and practice while training to become a medical intuitive.

There are also specific training programs available. These programs may be attached to alternative or complementary medical schools and they offer coursework that will allow a student to become a medical intuitive. Formal training can be helpful for people who would like to apply their skills to medical practice, as it usually includes a grounding in anatomy, physiology, psychology, and other concepts, with a focus on helping people use observational and interview skills in diagnosis and treatment.

Some people want to work as doctors, nurses, and other care providers while applying intuitive skills to patient care. They will need to complete training programs and certification requirements so they can practice conventionally. Once trained, they can work with diagnosticians, as well as people who identify specifically as intuitives to acquire intuitive skills that can be applied to patient care. Someone who chooses to become a medical intuitive while also pursuing a traditional medical education may want to seek advice from someone already working in this field to get information about the best people to train with.

There is some debate in the medical community about intuitives. Some people consider intuitive diagnosis and treatment an entirely valid part of medical care as long as it is based on observation and interview with diagnostic testing to confirm. Others question claims that people can diagnose disease by reading someone's energy, “scanning” someone's body psychically, or engaging in other alternative forms of medical treatment. Someone who plans to become a medical intuitive should choose a training program most suited to the proposed area of practice in order to receive appropriate advice and training.
