Health Navigation Minor

Health navigation is a new 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 18-19 credit hour 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.

The program is jointly offered by the Departments of Public Health and Health Sciences, Nursing, and Social Work. If you have any questions about the health navigation program or wish to explore serving as a health navigation practicum site, please contact (810) 237-6503 ext. 5 or
