Integrative medicine schools in Wyoming may soon be on the rise. Presently, Wyoming is home to eight public and three private institutions that jointly award some seven thousand degrees and certificates every year. Those numbers are considerably lower than those in comparable states, but owing to a recent educational reform they could be slated for growth. Wyoming historically housed far more colleges and awarded more degrees than it does today, but has recently been forced to hold its higher learning institutes to more rigorous standards. The Oregon State Office of Degree Authorization predicts that Wyoming's many currently unaccredited institutes will gain proper accreditation over the next several years.
Students pursuing a career in integrative medicine often choose to found their future practice on one of many two, four, or six-year degree programs. Dietetics, chiropractics, massage therapy, and nutrition are among popular fields on which to build an integrative medicine practice. Degree programs aimed at certification by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and a Commission on Dietetic Registration accredited agency are popular choices among future integrative medicine practitioners. An education through Wyoming's institutions combined with various distance learning options are effective means to these ends.
