INTEGRAL HEALTH SPECIALIZATION IN LIFE PHYSICS
The Integral Health Specialization in Life Physics Ph.D. program provides the student with advanced instruction in related research fields, such as bio-electromagnetic and electro-dermal studies, Apparatus for Meridian Identification (AMI), meridian research, bio-energetic phenomena, and biofeedback as well as advanced research methodology in quantitative research.
The PhD IH-LP specialization degree requirements, quarter units and required base core courses are the same as the PhD Integral Health program. To qualify for the specialization in Life Physics, students take specific elective courses designed to provide the graduate student with a solid foundation in research methodologies, anatomy and physiology, meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine and bio-energetic sciences.
In addition to the Integral Health PhD base core courses, the Life Physics specialization contains the following core electives. Remaining elective quarter units are selected from the Life Physics electives.
