  • About
    The Program

    The application for February 2018 enrollment is now open until September 30, 2017.

  • Watch Now: “Economics of Integrative Health”

    An informative webinar with John Weeks and Adam Perlman, MD, MPH, is now available for on-demand viewing. In his presentation, Weeks describes the economic models of Integrative Health and strategies to create a value proposition for programs.


An integrative approach to care not only encompasses an interest in expanding the evidence-based therapies used by healthcare providers to cure disease and restore health, it also includes a set of principles — such as being patient-centered and fostering patient engagement — that address how the care is delivered.  In addition, it emphasizes the creation of a culture of health and wellbeing, not only for patients and providers, but throughout the healthcare system and in the greater society as well.

In this time of change, many of the principles embraced by Integrative Healthcare are now in direct alignment with the overall direction and evolution of healthcare reform.

In addition to addressing major health concerns such as cancer survivorship, obesity, autoimmune diseases, cardiac conditions, metabolic syndromes and mental health issues such as depression, integrative strategies have also been successful in improving:

  • Population Health Challenges
  • Employee Wellness
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Resiliency in Patients and Providers
  • Patient Engagement
  • The Triple Aim
  • Physician/Provider Engagement
  • Prevention and Health Promotion
  • Focus—Being and Staying Present
  • Sustainable Healthcare
  • Patient-Centered Care
  • Stress Reduction/Burnout

Once a leader understands the principles behind Integrative Healthcare, then creative solutions to our everyday problems come into view.

If you are interested in becoming one of the leaders who will help transform our healthcare system and improve the health of our nation, the Leadership Program in Integrative Healthcare at Duke University is for you.
