What Do Our Students Say?

This program is not only about professional development, but about personal development and growth. The personal growth I have attained from the course is immense. Once you realize that, the cost is so reasonable. I have never felt so positive about my life and future as I do now!"

The Vanderbilt Health Coaching Program has the ability to truly reform the way we approach health care in the near future. By challenging us to go through our own personal change project, my eyes were opened to the struggles that patients go through when trying to implement and sustain healthy behaviors. By developing this unique role of a clinician health coach, we can cause exactly the type of positive disruption that is needed in today's fragmented health care system.

The program was everything I expected.  It became as much a personal journey in growth as a professional enhancement to my current practice. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve not only personal satisfaction in work/life but to develop the skills necessary to assist patients in making sustainable change."
—  Janis Day, RN APRN, CNM

At first, it felt like the course was written specifically for me to deepen my life experience.  After learning health coaching techniques, I realized the course was written specifically for my patients to deepen the healing experience.  Now, maybe both. "
