Program Overview

The Institute of Emerging Health Professions and The Marcus Institute of Integrative Health are joining forces to introduce integrative health education for clinicians and healthcare professionals. The Marcus Institute of Integrative Health, established in 2017, includes the historic first and only department of "Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Sciences," housed within a medical college. At the Marcus Institute, leading clinicians in the field combine the best of modern medicine with functional, integrative health approaches designed to empower patients, add value to their treatment plans, and enhance health performance and vitality.

Curriculum

This Advanced Practice Certificate in Mind-Body Medicine is unique in that it provides a foundation in mind-body medicine as well as clinical and integrative applications of specific modalities. With an increasingly high demand for mind-body education among health professionals, learners will be better equipped to incorporate these modalities into practice, to improve overall health outcomes across a wide range of patients. Upon completion of this certificate, students will fulfill the foundational course requirements needed for Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and the Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) basic training.
