Lifestyle Transformation ~ Interprofessional Education

Two New Interprofessional Education Programs

Integrative Health & Lifestyle

Integrative Health Coaching

For over a decade, AzCIM has provided the leading education in Integrative Medicine to Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants through our online Fellowship. Expansion into Medical Residency programs and Medical School Electives have followed, successfully.

A natural progression for the Center is to provide a strong foundation in integrative health, emphasizing the key role of lifestyle changes, to other healthcare practitioners.
