The Osher Collaborative for Integrative Medicine educates current and future health professionals, the public, and policy-makers to appreciate and address the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences that affect health.

The Collaborative aims to expand access to and the impact of integrative medicine with attention to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Education efforts focus on teaching, curriculum development, mentoring, leadership, and educational research in integrative medicine.

At the Osher Collaborative, we recognize the far-reaching impact that quality education has on all learners and patients cared for by the Osher Centers.


Highlights of Osher Collaborative Educational Programs:
