What You Can Do with a Healthcare Practice Specialization

A PhD in Mind-Body Medicine with a specialization in Healthcare Practice is ideal for licensed and aspiring professionals who seek a comprehensive education in integrative approaches to clinical practice. This specialization prepares graduates for a broad spectrum of healthcare occupations including health promotion, wellness education, and heath coaching.

Licensed healthcare professionals who complete this degree will strengthen their already existing careers, enabling them to offer their patients an integrative approach to treatment and a variety of mind-body skills. Graduates without healthcare licenses will be prepared to work in the private practice of coaching and stress management, and as consultants and employees in corporate and medically-based health promotion and wellness programs.

Our programs offer options for those interested primarily in the practice of mind-body medicine as well as those interested in pursuing research and academic teaching in integrative medicine. Whether you are a mid-career professional seeking to enhance your existing skills or an individual seeking to transition to a new career path, our programs provide a comprehensive overview of the holistic health field combined with core skills training.
