Osher Center for Integrative Medicine

The UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, located on the Mount Zion Campus, is committed to providing patients with the highest-quality care by thoughtfully combining proven therapies from both conventional and complementary medicine. Drawing on safe, effective techniques from around the world, our specialists focus not just on relieving symptoms but on maximizing whole person healing and empowering patients.

We typically devote a full hour to the initial evaluation, to give our patients the chance to fully tell their story and begin establishing a relationship with their new care provider. This visit includes a thorough discussion of individual concerns, goals and values, so we can partner with patients in their wellness journey and tailor a personalized plan that supports the needs of body, mind and spirit.

In addition to our clinical services, we offer a variety of public classes that aim to help participants foster their own healing, discover self-care techniques and improve their quality of life. To explore current class offerings, please visit our website.
