Osher Collaborative Faculty Fellowship


Program Overview

The Osher Collaborative offers specialized advanced training in integrative health with an appointment at an institution with an Osher Center (see below for details). The goal of the Faculty Fellowship is to develop highly skilled leaders and clinicians in integrative health. The interdepartmental Faculty Fellowship expands integrative health 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 health.

The yearlong program includes the following components:
  • Weekly 3-hour synchronous learning sessions Wednesdays 10-1 pm PST/12-3 CST/1-4 EST.  Fellows and faculty from across the  Osher Collaborative will participate in these seminars via Zoom.
  • Self-directed integrative medicine curriculum created by expert faculty across the Osher Collaborative
  • Case presentations with a clinical mentor.  Fellows will be matched in groups of 2-3 with a faculty member in their specialty for case-based learning sessions in which scholars present a case from their clinic and engage in a discussion with faculty and peers about the patient’s treatment plan.
  • A mentored scholarly project that is clinical, educational, and/or research-based
  • Upon completion of the program, scholars will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) exam
  • Osher faculty fellows should incorporate integrative health principles and practice into their ongoing patient care within their own clinical home. It is estimated that time spent incorporating IH into current care and/or providing IH consultative care will progress as knowledge base expands. The content should be appropriate to each fellow’s current practice and congruent with their own goals for integrative patient care.
