We need Health Coaches

We believe that health coaches are currently the missing link in healthcare.

Become a Certified Health Coach

Become a certified Health Coach with courses by the world’s leading scientists and doctors.

We believe that Health Coaches are fundamental to the successful future of medicine, and while doctors are at the front line of diagnosis, it’s Health Coaches who provide the support that enables people to make the lifestyle changes that are needed.

The current health system is failing sufferers of chronic disease – we need Health Coaches to help solve the problem.

By completing our online courses and becoming a PreKure certified Health Coach, you can support people in making the critical lifestyle changes required to dramatically improve their health and hauora/wellbing.

Below are the six courses that make up our Health Coach Certificate. You must complete and pass five of these six courses. PK101: Health & Behaviour Change is compulsory.

Dr Louise Schofield talks about why we need more Health Coaches.

“I have gained a deep knowledge that can be applied in a practical way.”

Continuing Medical Education

Upskill in courses that are based on the irrefutable evidence that lifestyle medicine works to prevent disease.

Lifestyle medicine is a blend of complex physiology and behavioural sciences that prevents preventable diseases and treats modifiable illness. By completing PreKure’s online courses you will:

  • Discover the evidence base for preventive medicine.
  • Change your practice and challenge the mentality around long-term conditions.
  • Enjoy more job satisfaction and see better health outcomes for your patients suffering from chronic conditions.
  • Earn CPD and/or CME points.

At PreKure we use the very latest thinking and evidence. A 2018 Science Advisory, just released by the American Heart Association, concludes:

“Enhancing physician education and training in nutrition, as well as increasing collaborative nutrition care delivery by 21st century health systems, will reduce the health and economic burdens from atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease to a degree not previously realized.”
