Members of the Bravewell Clinical Network work together to:

  • Gain a sense of community and increased support as they work through the difficult issues that face their clinical practices;
  • Share the best (and most challenging) practices in order to learn from each other;
  • Develop the capacity to successfully serve patients and thrive in the intensely competitive healthcare environment;
  • Develop highly effective clinical models;
  • Assure that integrative medicine is available to a greater number of patients;
  • Support the education and teaching of physicians and practitioners in the field; and
  • Develop opportunities for joint clinical research.

From time to time, new centers may be added to the Bravewell Clinical Network, but at this time, to best facilitate learning, the Bravewell Collaborative is not accepting applications for membership in the Bravewell Clinical Network.
