The Clinical Track is an approximately 1,400 hour, one-year program with the overall mission to develop expertise in incorporating Integrative Health as an overall approach to primary care and consultative practice. The Clinical Track provides the opportunity to develop a specific Integrative Health skillset or approach to care in which the fellow can become independently competent within the one-year period.
A. Expertise in Integrative Health Practice: Develop expertise in incorporating Integrative Health as an overall approach to primary care and consultative practice.
B. Familiarity with Non-Allopathic Approaches: Become broadly familiar with the most popular non-allopathic healing approaches in use in the United States.
C. Expertise in Treating Specific Conditions: Gain expertise in the evidence-based use of Integrative Health for treating people with an array of acute and chronic diagnoses, including those that are minimally responsive to current mainstream biomedical approaches.
D. Skill in Preventive Care/Self-Care: Obtain in-depth knowledge of preventive care practices, including modeling through personal self-care behaviors. Mindful awareness, in both professional work and self-care, is given special emphasis.
E. Specific Integrative Health Skillset: Develop a specific Integrative Health specialty skillset (thoughtfully planned to accommodate the one-year period) and become fully proficient in the particular approach to care or the integrative care of a specific patient population of choice. Examples of past fellow’s specialty skillset include in-depth trainings in herbal medicine, traditional healing, medical hypnosis, mindfulness-based stress reduction, guided imagery, acupuncture, osteopathic manipulation training for physicians, training with midwives and naturopaths in reproductive health, yoga teacher training, and personal trainer certification.
