Integrative medicine schools in Pennsylvania offer everything necessary to launch an exciting and successful career in helping to manage a community's health and wellness. Pennsylvania boasts one-third more two and four-year degree granting universities than the national average, as well nearly twice the amount of students and professors of most states. With such a thriving education community, any student with ambition and persistence is certain to be able to build the foundation of training, experience and certification needed to succeed as a health practitioner.
While some integrated medicine professionals begin offering health services with only a collection of certifications in the alternative medicine branches of their choice, the vast majority builds their practices on widely accepted, nationally certified health support careers. Four or two-year programs that intend to help students acquire certification from national organizations such as the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) are excellent starting places.
Integrative medicine is a developing field on the forefront of health services, and as such offers some unique opportunities. In Pennsylvania, for example, naturopathic doctors do not yet require specific licensing to practice.
