University of California, Davis (UC Davis) Health is joining 75 of the world’s most recognized academic medical centers and health systems as a new member of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health.  For integrative medicine professionals and students, the Academic Consortium is the world’s most comprehensive community for advancing the practice of whole health care, with leading expertise in research, clinical care, and education.

The member institutions within the Academic Consortium have created a strong network of medical centers and health systems dedicated to transforming the future of healthcare toward patient-centered, evidence-based integrative care strategies,” said Academic Consortium Chair, Amy Locke, MD.  She added, “we are so pleased to have the team at UC Davis join this community and our shared efforts to advance whole person care that is available to all patients.”

UC Davis Health, which is based out of the Sacramento campus of UC Davis, includes the UC Davis School of Medicine, Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, UC Davis Medical Center, and UC Davis Medical Group.  Their integrative medicine clinic opened in 2021 and offers mind-body medicine, acupuncture services, osteopathic manipulative treatment, and integrative nutrition.  The clinic helps patients develop an individualized plan alongside fellowship-trained physicians.

Nationally recognized for translating scientific discoveries and new technologies into improved patient care and community-wide health, UC Davis received over $1 billion in research funding during the 2021-2022 fiscal year.  Membership with the Academic Consortium will help UC Davis continue to grow their own integrative medicine program and share their ongoing research and clinical work with other member institutions. 


What is Integrative Medicine and Health: Integrative medicine and health reaffirms the important relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic and lifestyle approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

Who we are: The Academic Consortium is the organizational home for over 75 of the world’s most prestigious academic health centers and health systems that have programs in integrative medicine and health. The Academic Consortium was founded in 1999 by eight academic health centers (Duke University, Harvard University, Stanford University, University of California, San Francisco, University of Arizona, University of Maryland, University of Massachusetts, and the University of Minnesota). The Academic Consortium represents thousands of scientists, educators, clinicians, and other health professionals who share an interest in the field of integrative medicine and health.
