Which fund do I support?

Center For East-West Medicine General Fund

Contributions to this fund serve to strengthen the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine’s financial foundation and give life to its innovative programs in patient care, education, and research, including expansion of the Center’s new and current programs and resource development projects.

  • Integrative Medicine Online Curriculum

    The launch of the Center, particularly the educational programs have been mainly supported by philanthropy. With the expansion of the integrative medicine curriculum on Bruin Learn (UCLA’s Learning Management System), we aim to extend education beyond students and trainees in medicine to health-related professionals from various backgrounds, such as physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, acupuncturists, social workers and health advocates in each family. Support is requested for running and expanding our educational programs to help improve the health of more people.

    • ME207.01: Integrative East-West Medicine – UCLA 4th year medical student course
    • MED185: Introduction to Integrative East-West Medicine for Health and Wellness – An UCLA Summer Sessions Course
    • Integrative East-West Pain Management CME Course
    • Integrative East-West Pain Management Course for Charles Drew University Internal Medicine Residency Program
    • Introduction to Integrative East-West Medicine for Health and Wellness – An UCLA Extension Course
  • Family-Based Integrative Adolescent Program

    Born from the pandemic, this new program addresses the unique mental health and physical issues that have surfaced among adolescents. Our goal is to develop family-oriented educational programs for teens and parents to improve adolescent mental and physical well-being. The program will train pediatric healthcare professionals in integrative medicine, host mind-body workshops, and provide educational resources for teens and their families.

East-West Integrative Medicine Fellowship Training Fund under Dr. Katie Hu

UCLA Center for East-West Integrative Medicine Fellowship is one of the longest running and largest integrative medicine training programs in the country. We are one of twenty integrative medicine fellowship programs recognized by the American Board of Integrative Medicine. Of the twenty programs, our fellowship program is the only one with a specialty focus on Traditional Chinese medicine blending evidence-based integrative medicine, Traditional Chinese medicine and conventional biomedicine. Our fellows are board-certified physicians in Family or Internal medicine and are trained to assess and provide whole person care using all appropriate evidence-informed therapies for complex chronic illnesses. Under the direction of Dr. Katie Hu, contributions to this fund will support the education and training of fellows including salary support for fellows and faculty, salary support for our program coordinator, and education funds for each fellow.

International and Community Engagement Fund

The International and Community Engagement Fund has been established to support two main goals, including (1) Expanding integrative medicine worldwide and supporting programs such as training visiting scholars, international collaborations, leadership training, and faculty competency in order to nurture future leaders in integrative medicine’s education and clinical practice and (2) Developing culturally sensitive and community-centered education programs and activities to improve health care quality and access, as well as to also build better family and community support for local multicultural and Chinese-speaking populations. Your support for these programs will lead to changes and advancements that will continue to be beneficial to communities in the U.S. and to our global partners for many years to come.

Shirley Hui Memorial Fund

In memory of the Founder’s wife, Shirley Hui. Without the staunch support of her husband, a young medical student’s dream, the Center for East-West Medicine would not have been established and flourished. The Shirley Hui Memorial Fund supports aspiring individuals globally in developing innovative ways to improve health care through integrative medicine.
