Integrative Health Coaching Foundation Course

What is Integrative Health Coaching?

Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting behavior changes that are the foundation for a lifetime of well-being.  An Integrative Health Coach can help people find ways to successfully implement healthy lifestyle behaviors into their lives.

How do I become an Integrative Health Coach?

Duke Integrative Medicine offers two courses to train you as an Integrative Health Coach.  All participants start with our Foundation Course, focusing on core competencies of Integrative Health Coaching.  Following the Foundation Course, participants who desire advanced training may register for our Certification Course.

About the Foundation Course Curriculum

This course combines an online curriculum with onsite face-to-face training in order to accommodate the schedules of busy professionals.  This combination provides students with hands-on experiential practice of their new skills, preparing graduates to immediately utilize their skills.

At the conclusion of the Foundation Course, participants will have met the following learning objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of the science of behavior change, personal health planning, the Wheel of Health, and mindful awareness.
  • Learn how to incorporate these fundamental elements into coaching practices that motivate others to adopt positive behaviors for health and wellness.
  • Learn an integrative health coaching framework for use with individuals and groups, and have the opportunity to practice utilizing this framework.
