CGI launches new website

Improved functionality with a modern feel

CGI's website underwent a massive facelift over the past month! The new site assists visitors in finding what they're looking for more quickly, and helps tell the story of Who We Are!

Most of you know by now that CGI was created by Drs. Nicholas and Janet Cummings to provide an education behavioral health and medical professionals could find nowhere else. It was the answer many of you had been searching for - a doctoral education that focused on improving care for patients and innovating the healthcare system rather than the politics of higher education and a lengthy, research-based dissertation.

CGI is proud of the motivation behind the Institute, and grows ever more committed by the day to our Vision of Improving the Way the World Experiences Healthcare. 

Come visit us at our new online home!
