For Health Professions Students

As a University of Minnesota health professional student, you understand that we all come from a unique cultural, biological and spiritual background. Whatever your perspective, it is the search for quality of life that is universal to all of us. At the Center for Spirituality & Healing, we promote health and wellbeing by blending the best of modern, conventional healthcare with integrative healing practices. We accomplish this by teaching healthcare professionals about interconnectedness of body-mind-spirit and the vital roles that world culture and spirituality play in achieving optimal health and wellbeing.

The Center is a national leader in the field of integrative therapies and healing practices through its education, research, and outreach efforts. And as a student in one of the Academic Health Center's six schools and colleges, you are uniquely positioned to benefit from some of the nation’s top educators and programs in this burgeoning field.

In fact, as patient demand for holistic approaches to care continues to grow, supplementing your knowledge with integrative medicine is a wise, career enhancing move.

Enhance your education with our courses. Depending on your program of enrollment, you may be able to enhance your degree with a Graduate Minor or Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Integrative Therapies and Healing Practices.
