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 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.
Small Grant Opportunities
Each year the UW Osher Center for Integrative Health funds up to three small research projects conducted by University of Washington faculty members, fellows, and residents.
