The CIMHS certificate in Integrative Wellness Coaching is an opportunity to earn a professional credential that comprehensively prepares students with the fundamental competencies and skills to work within a variety of settings such as private practice, medical clinics, employee wellness centers, and corporate offices. Nurses, dieticians, health educators, organizational consultants/managers, massage therapists, and yoga teachers are incorporating coaching to strengthen their professional practice and communication skills.
For non-CIMHS degree students, the certificate includes a 16-week graduate colloquium (1-credit), three academic courses (9 credits), one residential conference, and a capstone essay. This is an educational opportunity for individuals to obtain a professional certificate without having to commit to a graduate program.
College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences students already take two 1-credit Graduate Colloquia and have an assigned mentor. They will not need to take the additional one-credit Graduate Colloquium. For those individuals currently enrolled in the MBM degree program, the required three courses (9 credits) may be added to their curriculum.
