Through the Wellness Leadership Institute (WLI), we have created a multi-disciplinary training environment that builds healthcare professionals’ skill-sets in wellness interventions, translational research, program evaluation, program administration and leadership. WLI is a market-driven program created in response to the rapidly growing interest of healthcare providers, national healthcare trends, and the demands of communities and organizations for wellness programs. Graduates will be prepared to augment their current clinical specialties and become healthcare consultants, wellness directors, government administrators, and college and university professors.

The WLI training format is an interactive and comprehensive educational experience. Core training topics include provider wellness, wellness across the lifespan, evidence-based assessment and intervention, health behavior change, healthcare systems, translational research and evaluation, health disparities, program administration, supervision, leadership, and grant writing. Group and individual supervision will be provided weekly. Regular networking visits will further foster trainees’ linkage with health professionals who are wellness experts and/or innovators in wellness programming and health promotion. Trainees will work on BHWP projects that match their interest and experience. They will also focus on their personal health and well being, utilizing the Behavioral Health & Wellness Program model of integrated wellness.
