Certificates

Integrative Health and Wellness Track offers three different graduate certificate programs:
CAM, Integrative Medicine Research, and Health Coaching


 

CAM certificate

The graduate certificate in CAM provides healthcare providers with knowledge and skills to effectively work with their patients on holistic approaches to healthcare. Our students are an inter-professional group from a variety of healthcare fields.  Together they explore the foundational theories and practices of alternative medicine. They learn to apply holistic principles in the care and treatment of their own patient population and how to identify characteristics of integrative medicine in their own communities. Enrollment in the CAM certificate program is open to licensed/certified healthcare practitioners.

Integrative Medicine Research Certificate

The body of research in integrative medicine has grown over recent decades. This research spans multiple disciplines from medicine, nursing, and psychology to exercise, creative arts, and complementary/alternative medicine. Designing research that aims to capture holistic approaches used in integrative medicine is challenging. Our graduate certificate in integrative medicine research explores the art and science of research on integrative medicine. Students learn to identify effective research methodologies, compare and contrast measurement tools, interpret research results, and operationalize the broader concept of integrative medicine into measurable outcomes applicable to clinical practice. Enrollment is open to researchers, experienced healthcare professionals and licensed/certified healthcare practitioners
