Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Integrative Medicine (NIH funded)

A key element of the education agenda for the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine is a research fellowship training program, which has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) –  now the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) since 1999.

Under the direction of Dr. Gloria Yeh, Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a clinician investigator in the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the program allows three years of protected time to complete innovative research projects. Some fellows may pursue a Masters of Public Health degree from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

This highly successful program has graduated more than 20 post-doctoral (predominantly MD and PhD) fellows, most of whom have gone on to positions in academic medicine. The training program touches all of the major HMS-affiliated hospitals, with fellows past and present conducting research studies at different institutions based on their areas of interest.
