Faculty Scholars Program

Program Overview

The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine offers specialized training for physicians interested in integrative medicine. The goal of the Faculty Scholars Program is to develop highly skilled leaders and scholars in integrative medicine throughout UCSF. The yearlong program includes three core components:

  • Mentored clinical training in integrative medicine

  • Classroom-based educational and experiential learning activities

  • Mentored research or other scholarly projects in integrative medicine

Faculty scholars are encouraged to develop their individual interests in integrative medicine, and may receive scholarship support for personal focus areas. The Osher Center clinic’s diverse patient population and broad scope of clinician expertise offer a unique breadth and depth of training opportunities. In addition, the resources and faculty of the Osher Center’s  research and education programs enhance educational activities, mentoring, and scholarship opportunities for faculty scholars.

Please contact Yvette Coulter to receive updates on the development of this program, and to learn about future calls for applications.

The Faculty Scholars Program provides an outstanding framework to learn Integrative Medicine, and continue serving my community and patients. The experience has allowed me to see patients through a more holistic lens, and offer evidence-informed, patient-centered modalities. I am now starting an integrative clinic at our Federally Qualified Health Center with support and mentorship from the program.
