We are excited to announce that Doane University, the leading private liberal arts college in Nebraska, has joined the edX global partner community.
Doane University is known for its undergraduate programs in natural and applied sciences, teacher education, liberal arts and business, along with its convenient and affordable graduate and continuing education programs. Its mission centers around academic excellence, innovation, community and a special sense of place for each individual.
Doane and edX are both committed to increasing access to high quality education to learners everywhere through online education, and we are thrilled to bring this innovative new program from Doane to the edX global community.
The first offering from Doane is a Professional Certificate program in Lifestyle Medicine Competencies. Professional Certificate programs are series of courses designed to build and enhance critical professional skills needed to succeed in today’s most in-demand fields. This program teaches the use of evidence-based, lifestyle therapeutic approaches to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases. The program also allows licensed medical practitioners to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits that satisfy the eligibility requirement for ABLM certification.
The program is open for enrollment today, and the first course, Lifestyle Medicine Core Principles, starts on January 17.
The launch of this course marks an exciting start to our ongoing partnership and we look forward to our continued efforts to expand access to high-quality education content globally, and to the launch of new programs from Doane in the near future.
Please join me in welcoming Doane University to edX!
