Become a health coach and help others

If you’re interested in guiding others to healthier lives, Carlow University’s Health Coach minor will help you learn to work one-on-one with patients and families. The minor can improve your health care career marketability in a rapidly changing industry landscape.

With an interdisciplinary focus, the Health Coach minor will prepare you for roles centered around the promotion of health. The program is designed for students who wish to work with patients or in health care, but not necessarily in a patient care role.

You will develop leadership skills through exploration of theories, practices and research, including an emphasis on understanding yourself and others.
