Specialization in Healthcare Research
Studies show that a whole person approach to health may yield far better results for many of the most intractable health problems of the 21st century. These integrative healthcare approaches have to be rigorously researched, effectively developed, and carefully tested. The Healthcare Research Specialization in the PhD program at the School of Mind-Body Medicine will put you in the forefront of this holistic medicine effort.
Over the last several decades western medicine has come to learn what traditional medicine always knew: our body, minds, and spirit are connected. Physical ailments can cause emotional and mental breakdowns; emotional trauma can cause physical and mental trauma; and spiritual isolation and despair can cause the body and mind to suffer.
As part of the PhD Mind-Body Medicine program at Saybrook, you’ll be on the cutting edge of your field, working directly with leaders in the field, and become a member of a community dedicated to improving healthcare in America and developing better models of care.
