About the OHSU Integrative Health Collaborative

Our vision

Advancing integrative health in patient care, education, and research to support and sustain well-being for all.

Our mission

We capitalize upon Oregon’s unique combination of conventional and complementary medicine colleges and universities to weave an integrative health network that encourages patient autonomy in developing an evidence-informed plan that supports a healthful (balanced) lifestyle.

We aim to make integrative health care services accessible to all regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, or abilities.

We strive to draw upon and celebrate wisdom from various cultures through offering a wide range of healing therapies including natural medicines.

Through excellence in innovation, we are continually transforming our knowledge through research endeavors and disseminating best clinical practice through education.

Diversity statement

The OIHC is committed to making integrative health practices and modalities available to all patients and are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion across all OIHC programs. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender/gender identity, disability, race, color, ancestry, citizenship, sexual orientation, marital status, religion or insurance status.

Indigenous healing acknowledgement 

We would like to honor the people and lineages of knowledge that have influenced our care. Many people have contributed to the practices we promote today. Some of those people are long forgotten, and many were purposefully erased. Their knowledge was freely shared to help those in need amongst their own people but was exploited by outsiders. Today, we acknowledge the practices we share are taken from many peoples, which make us responsible to honor and care for all people in need, in order that we might make amends and heal our communities.
