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

A 34-hour program for those serving children, youth, adolescents, and families in behavioral health, primary care, and other settings

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.
