Through the National Society of Health Coaches!
There is a clear demand by the healthcare industry for Evidence-based Health Coach Certification based on an individual's clinical expertise, knowledge, and licensure/credentials to practice. The National Society of Health Coaches works closely with its Professional Advisory Board, professional practice associations, MINT Trainers, and others in professional and private practice to establish its standards for core competencies, training, and testing. NSHC's Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice are based on those of the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
NSHC's self-study program, Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® for Healthcare Providers, 4th Edition, is uniquely designed for the busy healthcare professional and allied healthcare provider. On average, 85+ hours of focused self-study and practice are generally commensurate with testing success. However, differences in individual study habits, reading speed & comprehension should be taken into account.
NSHC's Self-Study Program includes either a Hardcopy Manual or E-Manual (for those that prefer to study online at our website). The E-Manual is "read-only" - not downloadable, editable or printable. Both study manuals include the same exact content and printable forms and tools. The program also includes additional online study aids, resources, and online testing.

The National Society of Health Coaches is the health coaching division of Miller & Huffman Outcome Architects, LLC.
While the ICHWC's attempt to standardize coaching certification standards internationally is a worthwhile effort, one certification does not meet the needs of all healthcare providers, nor all patients with varying acuity levels. In recognizing this distinct difference, the NSHC requires higher eligibility criteria for its Health Coach Certification; that which requires a current license, registration or certification to assess, plan, treat, implement and/or evaluate interventions in clinical and wellness settings.
Clinicians and practitioners should coach those with chronic conditions, co-morbidities, and high to moderate health risk for the same. NSHC's program of study is based on this premise. For this reason, the NSHC differentiates its Health Coach Certification and will remain independent of this consortium.
The National Society of Health Coaches is setting the gold standard for Evidence-based Health Coaching (EBHC)® in clinical practice. The model was first introduced in the summer of 2011 in North Carolina at the First Carolina Care CoachClinic®.
