8 Benefits of Being a Brain Health Professional

1. Diverse Career Specializations

Whether you start off as a volunteer or as a recent graduate from medical school, there are a variety of ways to enter the health field. With a multitude of specialties to choose from, you can chart your own course to a fulfilling career. And if you ever become dissatisfied with the job you’ve selected, you can always switch specialties, which will broaden your knowledge base and skills. This field is ideal for those who are willing to work in different states since there’s always a demand for quality specialists.

2. Growing Career

Healthcare was one of the fastest-growing careers over the past decade. With an increasing need for health services in our country, there’s no shortage of open posts at hospitals, clinics, and health and wellness centers. In addition to steady earnings, there are also many advancement opportunities for individuals who work hard and are team players.

3. Be Part of a Brain Health Community

Learn how the Amen Clinics Method, a proven program that has been developed based on over 30 years of clinical practice, can help you improve your patients’ or clients’ brain health. This clinical course from psychiatrist and brain health expert Daniel Amen, MD, is designed for psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, clinical social workers, physicians, naturopathic doctors, integrative medicine and functional medicine physicians, addiction treatment specialists, and other healthcare professionals. Thousands of people in the healthcare field are already certified as Brain Health Professionals, making this a robust community.

4. Enrich Your Education and Earn CE Credits

The Brain Health Professional Certification Course can help you enrich your practice and develop your professional skills with one of America’s leading psychiatrists and brain health experts. Learn the latest advances in brain-health care in this self-paced course that contains over 50 hours of comprehensive training on neurobiology and practical neuroscience. Get an in-depth look at how Dr. Amen teaches his clinical staff to diagnose and treat patients.

5. Improve Outcomes

Discover and master a unique skill set to improve your life and the lives of those you serve with a brain health-oriented approach. In this professional online certification course, Dr. Amen will teach you how to cultivate brain health in the lives of those you serve, including how to use the lessons learned from the world’s largest database of brain SPECT imaging studies (200,000 scans and growing) and how to implement the Amen Clinics Method into your practice.

Utilize the array of helpful resources in the Amen Clinic’s Method Toolbox, which includes checklists, questionnaires, treatment algorithms, the Amen Clinics intake forms, and planning forms. These valuable tools can help you determine a patient’s specific brain type without ever having a brain SPECT scan, so you can provide more targeted treatment and improve outcomes.

“Other than my faith, this course was the best decision I’ve ever made!”
– Mitchell Johnston, CPLC

7. Great Working Conditions

In addition to receiving great benefits, many health and wellness practitioners work in friendly office environments. Being part of a dedicated team of like-minded professionals can promote a culture of learning and a spirit of collaboration. It’s not uncommon for healthcare employees to grow so close to their coworkers that they become like a second family.

8. Help Others While Helping Yourself

Just as teachers learn as they instruct students, you can learn more about yourself while helping the people you coach. Doing work that you’re passionate about will benefit your personal and professional life. Investing in your health and career can also have a positive influence on your family, friends, and clients.

“I hope you join the team of professionals, such as myself…in the first major paradigm shift in the fields of psychiatry and psychology to occur in over 100 years! I and the healthcare professionals associated with me have greatly benefited from being intimately involved in the application of neuroscience to everyday practice from being able to learn from Dr. Amen and his staff.”

– Dr. Earl Henslin, Clinical Psychologist and author of This Is Your Brain on Joy
