The primary care fellowship is designed to train future leaders in integrative primary care. Fellows spend half their clinical time seeing patients seeking subspecialty care at the Center for East-West Medicine. The other half of their clinical time will be spent seeing patients independently and building a primary care practice utilizing the Integrative East-West approach, developed at UCLA Center for East-West Medicine.
This two-year program will help meet the demand for high-level generalists that practice integrative medicine. The integrative East-West medicine model as practiced at the CEWM is a person-centered approach operating within the biopsychosocial framework with a strong emphasis on self-care to help solve clinical problems while incorporating many diagnostic approaches and therapeutic modalities originating from traditional Chinese medicine.
Fellows will be afforded the opportunity to build a thriving outpatient general internal medicine practice on-site embedded within the consultative/treatment practice. The Center continues its efforts to build a one-stop integrative health center that will also serve as a community wellness resource and serve as a clinical training ground and demonstrate site for UCLA Health. This will help satisfy the growing demand for high-level generalists who practice integrative medicine. Fellows who have selected the Primary Care Track will play an integral role in the continued evolution of the Center’s integrative East-West medicine flavored patient-centered medical home.
Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis for the academic year starting July 1st. To apply, please submit a current CV and a personal statement providing your background, career goals, and reasons for selecting integrative medicine.
