The Doctor of Whole Health Leadership (DWHL) program, developed in collaboration with Cornerstone Collaboration for Societal Change and the Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU), includes the 1000 hour interprofessional fellowship in integrative health and medicine through AIHM. This program aims to address the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine’s call for a “seismic culture shift in attitudes, structures, processes, and policies” in order to achieve a whole health approach.

This intellectually rigorous program equips leaders with advanced concepts, care models, and leadership skills to influence the adoption of an integrative, whole health approach in the 
United States.
