Certificate in Holistic and Integrative Health

June 22, 2023 @ 8:00 am - June 22, 2026 @ 5:00 pm


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 combining the external, physical, and technologic successes of medicine with the internal, nonphysical exploration of healing. This Certificate Program has been endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association.
