PCBH Short Courses

In the decade since we began offering our Certificate Course, Integrated Primary Care has advanced and more and more Behavioral Health clinicians are building expertise in IPC.  For some of them, the full Certificate Course may not be the best solution.  BH Practitioners working in integrated mental health clinics ("reverse integration") may need a different orientation.  Those working with the elderly or in pediatrics may prefer to focus on those populations.

CIPC is now offering the opportunity to take Short Courses, in selected Behavioral Health topics.  The content and faculty are identical to Certificate Program modules. You may take one or several.
