OCOM’s DAOM students now have the opportunity to participate in a new collaborative clinical opportunity through the Osher Center for Integrative Health at the University of Washington!

The Osher Center for Integrative Health at the UW was established in 2018 and is led by Director, Dr. Iman Majd, an associate professor, Board Certified in Integrative Medicine, Family Medicine and acupuncture in the Department of Family Medicine at University of Washington, Seattle. He is the first physician to create a successful model incorporating acupuncture and Integrative Medicine consult in primary care at UW. OCOM DAOM students will have the opportunity to complete a 60 hour clinical externship rotating with several providers on the integrative medical team.

“As not all of our doctoral students are local, it has been important to explore valuable clinical opportunities not only locally, but also outside of Portland. This opportunity is a great example of these efforts and our commitment to excellence in clinical education, collaboration with other institutions, and post-graduate opportunities in areas of specialization and integrative care,” said Jaime Ralston-Wilson, Dean of Research and Postgraduate Studies at OCOM.
