Clinical Social Work & Behavioral Medicine Certificate Program

Boston University - Boston, MA

  • Certificate

Beginning in 2003, the Boston University School of Social Work and the Boston University School of Medicine’s program in Mental Health Counseling & Behavioral Medicine began offering a specialty program in Clinical Social Work & Behavioral Medicine. Behavioral medicine is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the development, integration, and application of behavioral and biomedical scientific knowledge and techniques to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of various complex illnesses and disorders. This certificate program expands the knowledge base for clinical social work practice by including specialized courses on behavioral neuroscience, psychopharmacology, and applied behavioral medicine. This program is especially useful to clinicians who wish to practice effectively in interdisciplinary teams focused on emerging and chronic health issues such as HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, obesity and its complications, cancer, chronic pain, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and substance abuse. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to work effectively across disciplines using this new synthesis of knowledge and skills.
