Guide to Integrative Healthcare Credentials & Certifications

By Glenn Sabin

It’s a veritable alphabet soup of acronyms and opportunities when it comes to the scores of continuing education and accreditations available for current and aspiring integrative health providers.

A difficult decision-making process made even more challenging to pull together so many options.

To address this void, the folks at Integrative Practitioner, led by editor Katherine Rushlau, have released a FREE 160-page guide to the multitude of integrative healthcare credentials and certifications currently available.


I’m often asked what fellowships and certifications are the best for a particular clinician discipline and area of expertise. Now, finally, there is a comprehensive resource to greatly inform this process—Integrative Practitioner’s Guide to Integrative Healthcare Credentials & Certifications.

From the publisher:

In this guide, you will find our research focused on six categories for each entry:

  1. What the credential certifies
  2. Certification standards and requirements
  3. Scope of practice
  4. Accreditation and governance
  5. Continuing education
  6. Any relevant additional information

We also listed background information on the license or certification, including:

  • Where its headquarters is located
  • What type of organization it is
  • When it was founded
  • Its mission
  • The minimum education level required to obtain the license or certification
  • Its website

In addition, we understand the lengthy list of acronyms does not end with credentials and certifications. In our glossary of terms, we lay out several medical boards, credentialing agencies, and certification entities as well as common industry terms allowing you to use this guide with confidence.

With this terminology in hand, our profiles can easily be digested, even by those with a passing interest in a credential or certification.
