Six-month program beginning in March 1, 2022  

Coaching curriculum to promote innovation, academic rigor, collaboration, and cultural humility. Our coaching process is grounded in the conventional healthcare model so that our health coaches are prepared to be a part of multidisciplinary teams within the healthcare settings. We expose our coaching students to information about cultural diversity, gender diversity, and other accessibility considerations related to health and wellness, so they are able to better serve underrepresented and underserved populations. Additionally, this program provides students with information about specific populations with common clinical conditions as well as lifestyle interventions that support their experience of wellness and assist them in obtaining their personal-optimal health. We at the Samueli Institute foster the development of leaders in the field of integrative health and whole person care and would be excited to have you participate with us through this program.

We are looking for people who have:

  • Bachelors or advanced degree in healthcare
  • Interest and/or work experience in academic medicine, underserved communities, and the incorporation of integrative health into a medical practice.

We train health coaches who may:

  • Be leaders in healthcare
