The online Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS) in INTM curriculum represents a progressive and forward thinking learning program for medical wellness. The MSHS in INTM requires the successful completion of 30 credit hours.

Students generate patient care plans, conduct case analyses, and evaluate practice standards to demonstrate competence of integrative medicine practice.  Biostatistics, epidemiology, and clinical research courses provide an opportunity for students to collaborate with professionals from various disciplines, explore translational research in human health and allow participation in practice-based research networks. 

Each student who completes the fellowship program will earn a MSHS in INTM from GW.

Standardized Patient Assessment & Mentorship

The Fellowship in INTM program expands upon the MSHS in INTM curriculum by adding additional hands-on experiences to meet core competencies defined by the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health (The Consortium). Fellows will demonstrate advance skill and understanding through a standardized patient assessment. Further, fellows will partner with a clinical faculty member to observe, evaluate and inform patient care.

The fellowship program ensures graduates will operate successful clinical practices, while building their professional skill set in research methods, business practices, relevant health policy and social aspects of health.
