Description:28 contact hours: Today's health care system is evolving in its approach to the health and care of a culturally and ethnically diverse client population. In the United States, the aging population, an increasing public awareness of major risk factors contributing to chronic illness, and the public's growing desire for alternative health care options are just a few of the factors behind the expanding interest in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Rapidly gaining in popularity, CAM is used by more than 40% of the U.S. population. The demand for knowledgeable providers to meet the needs of this population is dramatically increasing, resulting in the development of new jobs and the creation of new services. To gain a broad understanding of these therapies and to stay current with emerging trends, health professionals who work with diverse populations will need continuing professional education. The ability to understand the many types of therapies available is essential to providing safe, effective care in any setting. Program Benefits: The Certificate in Complementary and Alternative Medicine is designed to provide a multidisciplinary educational experience. Your CAM certificate will distinguish you as a knowledgeable, skilled, and committed professional in the field of complementary and alternative medicine. This program will: enhance your professional marketability; build your skills and competencies; fulfill continuing education requirements for many professionals; and introduce you to an interdisciplinary, multicultural perspective on health care. Career Opportunities: The CAM certification program will provide you with the knowledge and skills to effectively meet the needs of a diverse patient and client population in a wide range of careers. Today, opportunities exist in the fields of nursing, teaching, service, administration, and research. Opportunities also exist within government programs and agencies; public and private institutions that provide health, education, and social services; research centers; special interest groups; colleges and universities; and corporate human resources divisions.
