Unique curriculum delivery
Pacific College’s HHP programs are designed for the working adult. Courses are offered online, in both asynchronous and synchronous formats. Many classes are live and in real time with audio and video connection to faculty and fellow students. The connection among participants is comparable to that of on-site classes with the added benefit of attending from the comfort and convenience of your home. Distance education extends students’ network of opportunities internationally, while Pacific’s synchronous instructional design fosters camaraderie often exceeding that of on-site models. Because much coaching and consulting is conducted online, Pacific’s graduates will have a high level of experience and confidence in these media
Ancient wisdom for the modern age
While medical miracles surround us, and some can now hope to live to one hundred or more, the usual signs of aging and degenerative disease remain concerns. Studying and analyzing physiology, meditation, exercise, nutrition, and more provides resources to foster optimal health at any age. This knowledge empowers individuals to take control of their health and achieve resistance to disease and extend their functional longevity.
Recognizing the body-mind unity, the health and human performance graduates also employ traditional mindfulness and meditation techniques for mental and emotional management, positive effects on relationships, creativity, productivity, and even longevity. The program even explores recent insights from video game research and performance psychology to provide tools for performance solutions.
Coaching opportunities and library resources
During their training, students may offer coaching services to patients from Pacific College’s three clinics or at approved wellness programs, clinics, human resource departments, gyms, yoga studios, etc., or work with individual personal trainers. Upon graduation, alumni may offer their services to Pacific’s extensive database of patients.
Evidence-informed practice is a key characteristic of this program. Pacific College’s library is a member of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) and is part of the DOCLINE Inter-Library Loan (ILL) system through the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the NIH, which means students have access to a broad selection of full-text periodicals and databases.
