Certificate Description

The concepts of alternative, holistic, and integrative medicine have their roots in various healing traditions that have been around for thousands of years. Yet, this philosophy is receiving much attention today due to the changing health care climate, a growing need for a “different” health care system, and a recognition of the benefits of combing the external, physical, and technologic successes of medicine with the internal, nonphysical exploration of healing.

Certificate Purpose

The goal of this certificate program is to provide the learner with an overview of holistic and integrative therapeutic modalities and their role in health and healing.
