What is Health Coaching?

Coaches who train in our program learn to combine their existing health care experience with coaching skills to help patients manage a variety of chronic medical conditions, such as: metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and chronic pain.

A Health Coach is a partner in an individual's behavior change process. This process involves supporting the patient or client as they set goals, unearth values & strengths, and access intrinsic motivations to encourage the development of sustainable healthy behaviors and attitudes.

Can I Apply?

Yes, if you are currently licensed in a healthcare field and/or you have a college degree plus 3+ years of healthcare experience. Past student degrees and licenses include: MD, RN, APRN, PT, OT, Ph.D., and LSW.
