Health Care transformation is a team effort. 

A changing Health Care landscape—like transforming a practice into a Patient- Centered Medical Home—carries with it new demands.  If you are involved in a Primary Care practice, you know that solid evidence-based training is essential to enable you to be a valued and productive member of the team. The courses offered by CIPC aim at providing in-depth training to help behavioral health professionals, care managers, administrators and physician leaders build the expertise needed.

UMASS Medical School is ranked in the top 5 medical schools in the country in primary care training. The Center for Integrated Primary Care was launched and is thriving in this environment. Founder, Alexander Blount, EdD has been a pioneer in imagining, describing, and practicing the integration of Behavioral Health and Primary Care.                                     

Our former fellows and alumni of CIPC courses are going on to distinguished careers, and will be on the cutting edge of managing this new health care environment. We were the first and are still the best.

What course is right for me?

Our courses are delivered online in real time, so there are no travel costs. They are interactive, so there will be ample dialog with faculty and other students. Continuing education units are offered for many disciplines.
