Advanced Study Certificate in Holistic, Hospice and Palliative Care

Graduate Certificate Program

The Certificate of Advanced Study in Holistic Hospice and Palliative Care provides students with a mind-body-spirit approach to end of life care. Graduates of the program develop mastery in providing compassionate spiritual care to patients and their families.

The use of Complementary and Integrative Therapies (CIT) within the scope of end-of-life care provides practitioners the tools needed to treat the holistic spectrum of the patient and their family, while integrating an effective and efficient delivery of care. The program’s curriculum focuses on evidenced-based approaches and science-based clinical applications, while exploring culturally specific approaches and proven complementary and integrative modalities.
