The primary care fellowship is designed to train future leaders in integrative primary care. Fellows will split their clinical time seeing patients in our subspecialty care and seeing patients independently and building a primary care practice utilizing the Integrative East-West approach at our UCLA Center for East-West Medicine clinics.
The mission of East-West Primary Care is to empower patients to develop optimal health and well-being through an academic-based model of primary care rooted in the principles of individualized disease prevention, holism, integrative medicine and traditional Chinese healing philosophy.
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.
