Designed for social workers and related healthcare professionals, para-professionals, and peers, this program consists of six modules focused on transforming primary and behavioral healthcare systems resulting from the recent passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Each module is designed as a standalone learning experience, but altogether, the modules offer a comprehensive overview of the healthcare reform movement.
How is this program structured?
The Advanced Certificate in Integrated Primary and Behavioral Health is awarded on completion of five of the six modules, comprising at least 80 hours of instruction. Completion of each module results in the award of a certificate in the module's concentration and a corresponding number of Continuing Education (CE) contact hours. It is possible to complete the Advanced Certificate program in one academic year; however, each module is an independent unit that can be taken at any time in any order.
