Areas of Study: Inter-professional Health Studies
Increasingly, health-care and mental health-care providers work together in professional teams, requiring each team member to appreciate the contributions of those with professional training different from her/his own.
The Interprofessional Health Studies certificate brings together students with varied interests in health-related and human service professions to help them see their own chosen profession in the context of the many that provide health care and mental health care.
The 16-credit-hour Interprofessional Health Services certificate includes required courses in nutrition, health-care ethics, biopsychology and human service skills. Additional hours will be chosen based on the student’s interests – from athletic training, neuropsychology, counseling, social work, nursing or pathophysiology. An internship in a health-care setting will be another important requirement of the certificate
