The Osher Collaborative for Integrative Medicine comprises an international group of our six academic Centers funded by The Bernard Osher Foundation to study, teach, and practice integrative medicine. The six programs possess both unique and shared strengths in the areas of research, education, and clinical care. The Osher Collaborative advances the field of integrative medicine through the sharing of knowledge, resources, and best practices.
In April 2014, Northwestern Integrative Medicine was named the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine in recognition of a gift from Bernard Osher. With this gift, our center joined a family of integrative medicine centers – all are affiliated with esteemed teaching hospitals and universities. In addition to our center at Northwestern, the Osher Centers are:
- University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), San Francisco, California
- Harvard Medical School & Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts
- Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee
- The Karolinska Institut, Stockholm, Sweden
- University of Miami, Miami, FL
- University of Washington, Seattle, WA
