Health care providers will now be able to earn a postprofessional degree in advanced clinical practice from National University entirely online.
“The program has been redesigned to help busy physicians more easily complete this advanced degree while managing their busy practices,” said Randy Swenson, DC, MHPE, vice president for academic services.
The Master of Science in Advanced Clinical Practice (MSACP) degree provides an in-depth immersion into integrative medicine. The program is specially designed for first-professional health care providers including chiropractic physicians, naturopathic physicians, medical doctors, and osteopathic doctors.
Students in the MSACP program will study a broad list of patient conditions and treatment paths, allowing them to enhance their diagnostic and clinical skills. Taught by expert faculty with diverse professional backgrounds, the program includes advanced coursework in neurophysiology, functional medicine, research methodology, nutrition, pharmacology, and more.
Specific coursework in research provides students with a better understanding of scientific literature. Evangelia Skokos, DC, a 2013 MSACP graduate, said the program gave her the knowledge she needed to publish articles in medical journals, specifically information on how the revision and acceptance process works. She highly recommends the program for both educators and those in private practice.
“It really gives you an advanced perspective on health care and the confidence to tackle many different medical conditions,” she said.
The program will start in September 2017 with both full- and part-time options available. For a program overview and instructions on how to apply, visit /msacp or contact the Office of Admissions at 1-800-826-6285 or [email protected].
