Minor in Integrative Health
Students who choose to complete an integrative health minor increase their awareness of emerging issues in integrative and complementary health. They will become aware of how integrative health care brings conventional and complementary approaches together in a coordinated way with a patient-centered approach to health care and wellness which often including mental, emotional, functional, spiritual, social, and community aspects.
The Minor in Integrative Health consists of 18 instructional hours (9 hours from 3 required courses in the College of Medicine MEDS program and 9 hours from a choice of 14 elective courses across multiple colleges). The degree can be completed online, in-person or a combination of both and is open to all learners. Full details and the option to declare the minor will be available soon at https://med.uc.edu/medicalsciences. This minor will serve as a complement to the MEDS and Public Health programs within the College of Medicine although this minor is available to any UC student.

Courses can be taken as stand-alone classes or as part of the minor or certificate in integrative health.
