Integrated Behavioral Health -Clinical (Graduate Certificate)

Home / Degree Programs / Integrated Behavioral Health -Clinical (Graduate Certificate)

This certificate program in integrated behavioral health with a clinical focus provides training for clinicians who aspire to work in integrated primary care behavioral health. Though there is a growing need for behavioral health providers who can promote the physical and mental health of primary care patients, and despite licensed social workers and counselors comprising much of the field's workforce, there remain few opportunities for specific clinical training in the field. Few have received specific clinical training in brief focused interventions delivered in primary care clinics for a wide scope of health concerns.

The curriculum is designed to provide students with a deeper understanding of models of primary care behavioral health and provide training on evidence-based approaches to behavioral health care, population-based health and medical literacy to ensure applicants have a working knowledge of the skills necessary for success in the integrated primary care arena.

Admission requirements

Applicants must fulfill the requirements of both the Graduate College and the College of Health Solutions.

Applicants are eligible to apply to the program if they have earned a master's degree in a related field such as social work, counseling, family therapy, clinical psychology or nursing, from a regionally accredited institution.

Applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 (scale is 4.00 = "A") in the last 60 hours of their first bachelor's degree program, or applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 (scale is 4.00 = "A") in an applicable master's degree program.

All applicants must submit:

  1. graduate admission application and application fee
  2. official graduate transcripts
  3. personal statement
  4. one letter of professional recommendation
  5. current resume or curriculum vita
  6. submission of licensure form and copy of license
  7. proof of English proficiency

Additional Application Information
An applicant whose native language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency regardless of current residency.

All applicants are required to hold a master's degree that results in behavioral health licensure or license-eligibility. In rare cases, applicants are considered with a master's degree and licensure unrelated to their degree (e.g., applicant with a master's degree in public health and licensure as a registered dietician). Consistent with the current admissions process for the Doctor of Behavioral Health program, licensure and licensure-eligibility is determined by the student's submission of an online form that is part of the supplemental application and a copy of their board-issued license.

The requirements for the personal statement are outlined on the online application.
