Integrated Behavioral Health Program
The Integrated Behavioral Health Program has been in operation since 2009.
We offer the following programs and concentrations:
- The Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) degree prepares graduates to deliver integrated behavioral care treatment programs in primary care and other medical settings.
Students can choose one of two concentrations:
- The Clinical Concentration prepares licensed master’s level clinicians such as social workers, counselors, nurses and physician assistants to both provide integrated behavioral health care and design and manage programs
- The Management Concentration prepares master’s degree professionals to design, deliver and evaluate integrated behavioral health programs
The Master of Integrated Health Care (MIHC) is designed to meet the growing market demand for professionals with the ability to manage integrated health care programs. Integrated health care programs have emerged as a key component of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Medical Home (PCPCMH) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models of primary care. The MIHC curriculum prepares the graduate to design, implement, and evaluate integrated health programs. The curriculum includes the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School online courses allowing students to earn their Basic Certificate in Quality and Safety and incorporates learning in the Triple Aim for populations, quality cost and value, leadership, and improvement capability as part of the MIHC degree.
The Integrated Behavioral Health Program operates a robust research program focused on integrated primary care, behavior in health, chronic disease, costs of care and informatics.
