Training Health Coaches for Every Clinic


This project will help train health coaches in motivational-interviewing health counseling approaches proven to improve health behaviors around healthy eating, physical activity, and tobacco use, and to improve health outcomes.

We will provide professional health coaching training to participating primary care clinics, to existing lay staff members or new staffer hired to serve as health coaches. These train lay health coaches would then work directly with their clinics’ patients.


Program Goals

Over 30 health coaches, 150 medical students, and over 100 resident physicians will complete Consortium training programs in Health Coaching and Patient Navigation over the next three years.
