The integrative East-West Medicine clinic rotation offers interns and residents the opportunity to get clinical experience in the practice of integrative medicine either as a continuity clinic for a 2-week to 4-week intensive rotation. Residents will have opportunities to interact and learn on a one-on-one basis from Center faculty and staff. Trainees will also be exposed to other important factors influencing the practice of integrative East-West medicine, including but not limited to legal, financial, social, research, and international aspects of the practice.
Over the years, some residents who have taken the Center's intensive medical clerkships have returned to UCLA for fellowship for further training to become a leader in this innovative healthcare model.
Space is extremely limited. Interested residents should contact the Center Education Coordinator, Sandi Chiu, to inquire about availability. Priorities are given to UCLA residents who are in internal medicine, family medicine, or geriatrics.
