Integrative Nutrition Advanced Practice Certificate
Marcus Institute of Integrative Health
The Integrative Nutrition Advanced Practice Certificate will provide the knowledge for healthcare professionals to develop a patient-centered care plan using biometric data and evidence based nutritional lifestyle medicine approaches to improve patient outcomes.
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.
At Jefferson, Integrative Medicine is a new physician specialty, and "integrative health" includes the combined medical services and wellness therapies that are utilized in our practice to improve overall health status. The Integrative Nutrition Advanced Practice Certificate is unique in that it provides a foundation in nutritional science, as well as clinical and integrative applications of diets and specific nutrients. With an increasingly high-demand for nutrition education among physicians and many other health professionals, learners will be better equipped to address nutrition as a tool for improving overall health outcomes across a wide range of patients.
Developed and instructed by industry experts, the program consists of three, online 9-credit courses. This graduate certificate program was developed specifically for licensed, or soon to be, healthcare providers.
