The Premier Clinical Health Coach Training Program
Engaging. Transformative. Cost Effective.
Beth Busching, MSN, RN, LCCE –Community Wellness Department, Manager – Kishwaukee Community Hospital
“The Clinical Health Coach training was valuable, inspiring and filled with relevant, evidence-based information and great net-working opportunities. I enjoyed being with passionate, like minded people learning techniques to coach people to become active participants in their self-care especially as it relates to the realities of the changing health care environment and the increase of chronic disease in the U.S. Working in the Community Wellness Department of a hospital, we offer programs that focus on screening and prevention. With the Clinical Health Coach training information and coaching skills to implement, we can take our programs a step further in the community and coach people to self-manage their disease to see real change and positive outcomes in targeted populations.
The instructors were not only great speakers and experts in their field, but were warm and passionate creating an atmosphere that was intellectual, conversational, fast-paced, yet fun, interesting and applicable to many healthcare environments. Personally, the training helped me to listen, understand “presence” and believe and trust that all individuals are unique and have the capacity within to make changes. Thank you for one of the best trainings I have ever been to!

“Our providers depend upon the services of the health coaches. Our patients view the health coaches as an added service that is of utmost value. Our outcomes have shown that health coaches have been very effective in decreasing the number of hospital readmissions and ER visits. And, they have had an impact on our quality improvement in diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. Our organization sees the value of the health coach role.”
Jennifer Moulton, RPH & CEO — Collaborative Education Institute
“The Clinical Health Coach program is taught with excellence. I believe in the content of the course. The training is motivating, engaging and will elicit passion and change in individuals and throughout health care systems.”
Carolyn Reconnu, RN, BSN, CCM — Manager, Health Management Program – Oklahoma Health Care Authority
“Health coaches close the link between physicians and providers assuring that we don’t waste the resources of the office visit. They build connections with patients that extend beyond that visit into their lives.”
Nancy — Story County Medical Center
“Up until today, we’ve always been treating people based on symptoms. We’re not catching them ahead of time or doing anything preventative to assist them – we’re not keeping them out of the hospital. But now we’re learning how to take the concerns of the patient and help them work through them. Whether it’s their diet, a chronic condition, or it has to do with their emotional state. We’re actually getting the tools & the templates to guide those patients into making those healthier decisions – and to keep them out of the hospital.”
Kathy Miczulski, MS — Clinical Exercise Specialist – Cardiac Rehabilitation Department – North Colorado Medical Center
“The Clinical Health Coach training opened my eyes to the fast-changing landscape of today’s health care and the vital role that health coaching is likely to play. Not only are the members of the Clinical Health Coach staff experts in their respective fields, together they created the most nurturing and supportive environment in which to learn and practice the techniques of health coaching. My experience was truly transformational, both personally and professionally.”
Frannie — Polk County Health Department
“The Clinical Health Coach training has given me a picture of how to implement preventative care through better care coordination – a move away from episodic care and toward looking at the full picture. Activating patients toward their own health goals.”
Nancy Willart — Director of Health Promotion – Story County Medical Center
“The Clinical Health Coach is so valuable in being able to connect with the patients. From a nursing perspective we’ve been taught to educate, educate, educate. This gives us a different approach. It allows the patient to come to those goals themselves with assistance from us to apply those goals. We are learning how to take the concerns of the patient and help them work through them. Whether it’s their diet, their emotional state or their chronic condition. We’re getting the tools, the template to guide those patients into making those healthier decisions. . I think Clinical Health Coach brings very valuable benefit to patients to help them maintain their health.”
Uche Okeke – Erickson Living
“We at Erickson Health consider ourselves privileged to be a part of this unique training program and thank you for making it a huge success. It was a lot of great information but you and your team made it easy for us to absorb. We look forward to applying all we have learned in our communities and we will certainly stay in touch as we test our new skills.”
“After over 30 years as a nurse, I thought I had mastered anything that a clinical health coach course may offer. However, what I learned through this course has raised my level of competence to a new level. It wasn’t until I began to practice with others that I realized the value of completing the ICCC Clinical Health Coaching Certification.”
Lori Jackson – Independent Health Coach
“Not having a medical degree but had worked in the medical field for several years I wondered if I’d be able to truly relate to Health Coaching. I absolutely enjoyed it and can’t wait to dive into it with clients. What an eye opening experience and such a simple concept of letting the patient drive their own plan so they can succeed! The staff were all very helpful and made it a great experience.”
