Catalyze healthcare reform and improvement as champion for integrated behavioral health.

The Integrated Behavioral Healthcare (IBH) certificate program, available to students enrolled in the Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH degree program, focuses on use of evidence-based models of integrated behavioral health delivery for the clinical provider working in fast-paced primary care or specialty medical setting. Students are prepared as healthcare professionals to deliver integrated clinical care, consult with medical teams as a leader and integration expert, and to launch innovative practice models that offer unique value propositions to the healthcare marketplace.

Five specialty areas are offered, each of which reflect the need for specific and advanced training in clinical practice with key populations.

Adult, Gerontology, Military Families & Veterans, and Women’s Health specialty tracks provide coursework to prepare students to understand the epidemiology and prevalence of mental health disorders, chronic disease, and comorbidities specific to the population of focus, as well as evidence-based interventions that effectively address these issues to improve overall health and quality of life for these populations.

The Leadership specialty prepares students to accept leadership roles in healthcare, including management and executive positions responsible for leading intrapreneurial improvement efforts as well as innovation and entrepreneurial challenges that address gaps in healthcare delivery settings.

The Integrated Behavioral Healthcare (IBH) certificate program is offered as stackable credentials exclusively to students currently enrolled in the Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) degree program at Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Health Studies.
