ACHS Announces Articulation Agreement with MUIH

DaVinci Laboratories

The American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) has announced a new articulation agreement with Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH). This collaboration unites two major industry leaders in the integrative health higher education field to further advance student and graduate opportunities in holistic health and wellness.

“The American people currently have access to a wide-range of medical and wellness avenues, including primary care physicians, hospitals, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, clinical aromatherapists, schools, the military, community events and online venues, among others,” said Dorene Petersen, ACHS president and founder. “Collaboration across these many avenues—especially among accredited educational institutions—is more important than ever to ensure our clients, friends, and family members have the information they need to make an informed decision about their health and a clear, accessible route to get the help they need.”

The ACHS/MUIH articulation agreement expands student access to educational opportunities. MUIH students and graduates now have an accelerated pathway to admission into several of ACHS’s integrative health and wellness programs, including post-baccalaureate certificates in aromatherapy, herbal medicine, holistic nutrition, and botanical safety, among others.

Similarly, ACHS graduates from the college’s Bachelor of Science in Holistic Nutrition and Bachelor of Science in Integrative Health Sciences now have an accelerated pathway to admission at MUIH and are eligible for entry into several of MUIH’s programs, including master’s degrees not currently offered at ACHS including acupuncture, Oriental medicine and health promotion.

“This agreement reflects the shared commitment of MUIH and ACHS to integrative health and building the next generation of practitioners in the field,” said Dr. Christina Sax, MUIH’s provost and vice president for academic and student affairs. “We are pleased be able to call ACHS a partner.”

“We are honored to partner with MUIH through this articulation agreement, designed to open more doors to future wellness practitioners from both ACHS and MUIH to pursue meaningful education, professional collaboration and personal health,” added Erika Yigzaw, ACHS chief strategy officer. “As two of the most innovative accredited educators in the health and wellness space, we are delighted to collaborate with the team at MUIH to help students maximize their credits, saving time and money as they earn accredited degrees in the field.”
