The Osher Center for Integrative Health

The Osher Center for Integrative Health at the University of Washington was established in July 2018 with the generous support of The Bernard Osher Foundation. We seek to transform health care in the region by integrating traditional and complementary wellness approaches into patient care.

What We Do

We seek to nurture new and transformational integrative models of care that are patient-centered, acknowledge the role of lifestyle as a major determinant of health, and respect the healing approaches of diverse cultures while emphasizing patient empowerment and focusing on prevention and whole-person healing.

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine brings together conventional and complementary practices in a coordinated manner to promote health, illness prevention and healthy living. It emphasizes a holistic, patient-focused approach to health care and wellness, treating the whole person. The UW Osher Center emphasizes that the practitioner and patient are partners in the healing process, and all factors that influence health, wellness and disease are taken into consideration.
