The Osher Collaborative for Integrative Health comprises an international group of seven academic Centers funded by The Bernard Osher Foundation to study, teach, and practice integrative healthcare. The Osher Collaborative amplifies the collective impact of the seven Osher Centers on health and well-being for all.
The Osher Foundation has awarded a five-million-dollar endowment to the Osher Collaborative Coordinating Center for education efforts that span all seven Osher Centers. No other integrative medicine educational program builds on a foundation of such close collaboration among world-renowned academic health centers. The endowment will support the Osher Collaborative Faculty Fellowship, which provides advanced training for faculty to become highly skilled leaders and clinicians in integrative medicine.
