Doctor of Science in Integrative Healthcare Huntington University of Health Sciences
Huntington University of Health Science’s (HUHS‘s) Doctor of Science in Integrative Healthcare program is unlike virtually any other doctorate program available in the U.S. or abroad. This dynamic, professional doctorate program is designed to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to take an integrative approach to patient care by applying principles associated with functional medicine, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), and other integrative healthcare topics. It also prepares graduates to manage a CAM practice and to conduct CAM-oriented research—the D.Sc. Program is offered exclusively online and has no residential requirements.
The D.Sc. The program offers two areas of concentration: 1) Clinical Nutrition or 2) a Personalized Concentration. Graduate students who wish to gain a more in-depth understanding of nutritional medicine in clinical practice should take the Clinical Nutrition application. Those who wish to focus on an area of integrative healthcare not currently offered as part of a formalized study program through HUHS should consider the personalized concentration. Through a prior agreement with course instructors, students might use various sources of information as a basis for learning, include any combination of attending symposiums or seminars, reading textbooks or scientific literature, participation in a research project, or participation in a professional activity related to the health sciences. Examples of Personalized Concentrations in integrative healthcare include holistic nursing, Phytotherapy, dietary supplement science, hair and scalp science, integrative healthcare education, etc. The D.Sc. The program culminates in a capstone project. The capstone project is a substantial research project that is ultimately presented in a dissertation that conforms to institutional standards. A maximum of 9 credit hours may be transferred from previously completed graduate courses from other accredited institutions.
