Empower others to take control of their well-being
Many of the factors that determine an individual’s health are environmental and behavioral, not medical. Through Creighton University’s professional development courses in health, you can explore many of those factors. With our classes, you can study nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress and more—and how to effectively communicate strategies and behaviors that support a healthy lifestyle.
Each of the professional development courses in health are curated by expert faculty and many offer experiential learning opportunities or provide skills you can immediately use in your personal or professional life.
Designed with busy professionals in mind, Creighton’s professional development courses are flexible and streamlined. Most are offered online and can be completed in a matter of weeks, not years.
If you’re ready for something more in-depth, you can take a series of courses to earn a Graduate Certificate in Lifestyle Medicine.
