Web-Based Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care

The Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care (IBHPC) is designed for clinicians -- such as social workers, nurses, care managers, psychologists, and physicians -- who deliver or plan to deliver integrated health services. The program offers three track options so participants can tailor their learning to the populations they serve:

  • Pediatric Track »
    (for those serving children, youth, adolescents, and families in behavioral health, primary care, and other settings)
  • Adult Track »
    (for those serving adult populations presenting with complex needs in physical health, mental health, and substance use)
  • Combined Pediatric and Adult Track »
    (for those interested in the distinct considerations for providing integrated care to both pediatric and adult populations)

Registration is now open for the Fall 2016 cohort, which runs October 7, 2016 through December 16, 2016. Please register by September 23.

The certificate program in IBHPC is an interactive web-based learning experience. Participants connect from their home or work computer. Each course is a mix of web-based live interactive lectures and pre-recorded self-paced lectures. During all live sessions, participants will have instant access to faculty in real time for comments, questions, and discussions.

Participants require access to high-speed Internet and a computer with a camera and microphone. You do not need special skills to participate successfully in a distance-learning environment. We will provide detailed, user-friendly instructions and technical support. We have found user-friendly webcams with microphones for as low as $25.00.
