Health navigation is a newer role in the changing health care environment. Health navigators work in hospitals, health clinics, human service agencies, and insurance companies. They work with clients to clarify the health system and health insurance, assist clients to access services they need and are eligible for, and educate clients regarding overall health.

The health navigation program is open to UM-Flint students as a minor and to non-degree students as a certificate. The program can be completed in 1-2 years.  Courses in the health navigation program are taught by knowledgeable Public Health and Social Work faculty. The minor/certificate curriculum consists of courses that address:

  • Medical terminology
  • Case management
  • Health promotion
  • Motivational interviewing
  • The Affordable Care Act and Health Insurance
  • Health assessment
  • Health navigation practicum
