Energy Medicine Internship— Level 2
The majority of Programs at the University are conducted by 100% distance learning and do not require field or practical studies.

The range of specialties in Integrative and Holistic Health practice are arrayed across a broad spectrum of methods and disciplines. Examples of practice in which a student may choose to study with an internship include, but are not limited to Acupuncture, Acupressure, Apometrics, Aroma Therapies, Biofeedback, Color Diagnosis and Therapy, Electromagnetic Therapies, Herbology, Homeopathy, Kinesiology, Medical Intuition, Meditation & Stress Reduction, Music Therapy, Naturopathy, Psychometry, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Qigong, etc.Evaluation of locations and organizations in which student internships are appropriate is based on the standards of good practice that are particular to the special field. The professional societies or associations active in the field service as community arbiters of good practice and these standards are used to evaluate candidate internship sites. In addition, either active faculty with education and experience in the practice, or consulting faculty with education and experience in the practice, serve as program and location evaluators of candidate internship sites. Internship course faculty includes both the supervising faculty member and a field-site supervisor. The field-site supervisor will provide monthly student performance reports to the course supervising faculty member, and also provide a semester final assessment of student performance. Assessments by the on-site supervisor will provide evaluation of the student’s integration and demonstration of professional competence, and accomplishment of program goals and objectives. The student will provide to the course supervising faculty member an assessment of their own learning and performance, and also a scholarly paper investigating the tools, techniques, knowledge, and practices experienced during the specialty internship. Course grading is determined by a final oral exam, the coursework papers, field-site supervisor and instructor assessment of integration and demonstration of professional competence during the Energy Medicine internship.
