Osher Collaborative Faculty Fellowship


Program Overview

The Osher Collaborative offers specialized advanced training for faculty interested in integrative medicine 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 medicine. The interdepartmental Faculty Fellowship expands 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.

The yearlong program includes the following components:
  • Self-directed integrative medicine curriculum created by expert faculty across the Osher Collaborative
  • Weekly online or in-person teaching sessions with faculty and fellows across the Osher Collaborative held from 10 am to 12 pm PST / 1 pm to 3 pm EST on Wednesdays 
  • Bi-weekly 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
  • Scheduled meetings with the fellowship director and project mentor
  • Upon completion of the program, scholars will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM) exam
