Founded in 2015, Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Health Studies (CGI) is one of three of nonprofit universities worldwide that grant the distinguished Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) degree, and is the only university that exclusively focuses on the growing field of integrated healthcare. CGI credits its origins to the work of Nicholas Cummings, Ph.D, Sc.D (1924 -- ), an American psychologist, author, and former president of the American Psychology Association (1979).
CGI delivers 100% online, post-graduate training to mental health and allied health professionals, advancing their knowledge and expertise in integrated behavioral healthcare. Students are prepared to deliver patient-centered care, work in interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practice and quality improvement approaches, and utilize informatics in primary care and other medical settings.
The flexible and affordable online DBH program gives students the opportunity to complete their degree while balancing personal lives, commitments, and professional practice, without the requirement of a residency or internship. _________________________________________________________________
