Education

Overview

Education

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.

The goal of the Faculty Fellowship is to develop highly skilled leaders and clinicians in integrative medicine. The interdepartmental Faculty Fellowship will expand integrative medicine expertise, fostering an accessible and comprehensive network of integrative care, education, and scholarship. Over the course of the year-long program, scholars are encouraged to develop their individual interests in integrative medicine.

Developing and Implementing Core Competencies for Integrative Medicine Fellowships

In an effort to train medical professionals to adequately counsel patients on the safe and appropriate use of these approaches, medical schools and residencies have developed curricula on integrative medicine for their trainees. In addition, integrative medicine clinical fellowships for postresidency physicians have emerged to provide training for practitioners interested in gaining greater expertise in this emerging field.
