The Birthplace of Integrative Medicine

The Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine is the global leader in innovative integrative education, evidence-based clinical practice, and influential research since its establishment in 1994. Founded and directed by Dr. Andrew Weil, who holds the Lovell-Jones Endowed Chair in Integrative Medicine and serves as Clinical Professor of Medicine and Professor of Public Health at the University of Arizona, the Center has gained international recognition for its pioneering work.

Our research activities seamlessly integrate complementary therapies with conventional medicine, with a special focus on education and corporate health. Under the guidance of Dr. Esther Sternberg, we investigate the intricate mind-body connection and its application within the realm of integrative medicine, including our collaboration with the University of Arizona through the Institute on Place and Wellbeing.

With over two decades of experience, we are trailblazers in online learning, offering certification programs that propel professional development in integrative medicine. Our graduates have empowered more than 8 million patients to actively engage in their health.

The Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine, nestled in Tucson, AZ, serves as both our home and a beacon of integrative health.

Our consultative practice directly serves patients, offering a diverse range of therapies that bridge conventional and complementary approaches to healing. Our complex of buildings is constructed as health-promoting workspaces, embodying our commitment to integrative medicine in both form and function. We envision a world where the word integrative is dropped from integrative medicine and it becomes just good medicine.

Thank you to our donors for all your support in our mission.

Diversity and inclusiveness are core values for the University of Arizona and for the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine.
