Thomas Jefferson University and Council for Relationships Launch Medical Family Therapy Program

Jefferson College of Health Professions is now accepting applications for a 12-month, 12-credit post-graduate certificate in medical family therapy. The program, a unique collaboration between Jefferson’s Department of Couple and Family Therapy and the Council for Relationships, emphasizes hands-on clinical experience.

The program is for individuals with a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, social work, psychology or a related field who treat families affected by medical diagnosis or treatment within a collaborative healthcare environment.

The program starts in January. There is one 3-credit course in both the spring and fall semesters. A clinical practicum consisting of 150 hours of direct clinical practice and 50 hours of clinical supervision runs the entire year.
