Center for

Integrative Health and Wellness

About the Center

Integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with evidence-based complementary therapies such as mindfulness approaches, nutrition and health coaching, acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga therapy and stress reduction techniques for optimal healing.

The Center for Integrative Health and Wellness focuses on promoting integrative medicine principles at the UC Academic Health Center and throughout the community. We are working to engage members of all colleges and units across the university, along with our collaborative partners in the community, to develop robust integrative health and wellness initiatives and programs.

Our faculty provide education to enrich and cultivate integrative medicine skills for medical students and promote the value of treating the whole person. Using evidence-based perspectives, graduates will be able to address and counsel patients in the use of integrative modalities, improving patient care and satisfaction. Likewise, our researchers are involved in several federally-funded research projects that focus on integrative care.

The Center for Integrative Health and Wellness at UC College of Medicine is working to change society’s approach to healthcare. Read more about our mission and leaders >>
