The Osher Center is committed to providing education for the public and for healthcare professionals.
For Healthcare Professionals
lnterprofessional education and care approaches help health practitioners look beyond their disciplines and adopt a patient-centered approach, one that acknowledges that health is shaped by complex interactions of environmental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social factors. Our well-established interprofessional training programs encompass medicine, nursing, social work, physician assistant education, pharmacy and public health. These programs emphasize team-based clinical practice transformation and serve students as well as faculty and clinicians.
The Osher Center will offer opportunities for interprofessional teams comprising students in medicine, nursing and other medical disciplines to learn about integrative medicine. We also seek to focus on faculty development, health practitioner wellness, and providing health information for the integrative medicine workforce.
Integrative Medicine Fellowship
In conjunction with the Osher Collaborative, the UW Osher Center is developing an integrative medicine fellowship. Fellows will be trained in the Osher Integrative Medicine Clinics throughout the Osher Collaborative as well as at other clinical sites where integrative medicine services are embedded, including primary-care, neurology and rheumatology clinics and the Pain Clinic. The integrative medicine fellowship will focus on non-pharmacologic strategies for the treatment of pain, and will build a foundation for increasing integrative pain medicine training within the family medicine residency.
The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine will offer a variety of public classes and workshops. Offerings and information regarding location, price, and how to register will be added to this page as they become available.
