Mission

The Osher Collaborative for Integrative Medicine amplifies the collective impact of the six Osher Centers on health and well-being for all.

The Coordinating Center

The Coordinating Center of the Osher Collaborative for Integrative Medicine supports our shared mission of fostering integrative medicine internationally by fulfilling three key functions: strengthening connections among Osher Centers for Integrative Medicine, enhancing the engagement of Osher Collaborative members across sites, and facilitating collaborative educational, clinical, and research initiatives.  This global hub, hosted by the UCSF Osher Center, provides the infrastructure to support collaborative initiatives across all six Osher Centers.
