Integrative health is one of the fastest growing areas in the health care industry. The aim of Integrative Health Certificate Studies (IHCS) is to provide students a solid foundation in the area of integrative health, through four online courses: Introduction to Integrative Health Care, Trends in Integrative Health, Psychology of Mind/Body, and Mindfulness. The courses may be taken individually or linked together for completion of the IHCS.

Intended Audience: The IHCS is designed for anyone in the health-care industry (especially those who are at the bedside), hospital administrators, practioners, mental health-care personnel, social workers, professionals in the field of education and interested individuals. The IHCS is non-credit and open to the community.

Program Content and Structure:The Integrative Health Certificate Studies (IHCS) is a series of 4 six-week online courses consisting of 24 student learning hours or 2.4 CEUs. The courses are instructed 100% asynchronously online or entirely at a distance.
