Southern California University of Health Sciences has announced a new doctoral degree program: Doctor of Whole Health Leadership (DWHL).
The program was design to foster the building of bridges between conventional medicine and integrative health and meet the need for more leaders in the integrative, whole-person health movement. The DWHL was developed with Cornerstone Collaboration for Societal Change, the nation’s leading expert in whole health, and is offered through a partnership with the Academy of Integrated Health & Medicine (AIHM), the premier association for the interprofessional integrative health community.
The intellectually rigorous DWHL program will prepare leaders with the skills and knowledge necessary to influence the complex challenges of adopting an integrative, whole-health approach to health in the United States.
Designed for working clinicians and administrators, the DWHL is offered online with four on-site weekend intensives in the spring and fall. It can be completed in two years and includes a capstone experience that allows students to design real-world solutions to effect real-world change. By the end of the two years, students and faculty will become a meaningful professional network of like-minded change agents.
The DWHL offers three tracks: the DWHL with AIHM Fellowship Track, DWHL for Integrative Fellows, and DWHL for Administrators. The first cohort will begin in Fall 2024.
