The Center supports training and education in the form of co-hosting journal clubs and lecture series, as well as workshops and conferences.
The Center co-sponsors with the
Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSD Holistic Integrative Medicine (HI-Med) student organization an Integrative Medicine Journal Club which takes place at noon on the second Tuesday every other month in the Medical Education - Telemedicine (MET) building room 315 (unless otherwise notified). Peer reviewed journal articles on topics in integrative health are presented and discussed by UC San Diego medical students, naturopathic medical students, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and faculty, as well as nurses, acupuncturists, Chinese medicine practitioners and nutritionists. The goal of the Journal Club is to connect individuals from allopathic medical backgrounds, integrative practitioners and researchers to discuss the latest integrative medicine research. If you would like to be notified of future journal club meetings please contact Dr. Laura Redwine at
