Building Research across Inter-Disciplinary Gaps (BRIDG)

T90/R90 Clinical Research Training Program in Complementary and Integrative Health

Conducting research in complementary and integrative health (CIH) requires a multi-disciplinary approach that is only possible by bringing together experts in research, clinical care and CIH. Supported by a five-year grant from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), the University of Washington in Seattle, and the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR, are excited to announce the Building Research across Inter-Disciplinary Gaps (BRIDG) T90/R90 Clinical Research Training Program in Complementary and Integrative Health. The BRIDG program is a two-three year immersive clinical research training program for both doctoral-level healthcare providers in the disciplines of CIH (e.g., ND, DC and DAOM) and conventionally trained researchers from biomedical and public health disciplines (e.g., PhDs, MDs, DrPH, DSW, etc.). Program directors include Cathyrn Booth-LaForce, PhD (UW), and Heather Zwickey, PhD (NUNM).The BRIDG program is divided into the “T90” program and the “R90” program:

T90 ProgramPost-docs for CIH healthcare providers who want to learn clinical research

R90 Program: Post-docs for researchers who want to learn clinical CIH research
