The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine now hosts monthly Integrative Medicine Grand Rounds, which are open to the medical community at large. They are held at 1545 Divisadero, 5th Floor. CME credit is available.*

- to understand the prevalence, diagnostics and current treatment modalities of adolescent depression, including efficacy and side-effects;
- to obtain a basic understanding of the most common neuroimaging findings of adolescent depression and their possible clinical implications;
- to know which important contextual factors drive the depressive pathophysiology and how these are mediated through epigenetic, endocrinal and immunological mechanisms; and
- to be introduced to new prevention and treatment initiatives aligned with both developmental neuroscience and a contextualized understanding of adolescent depression.
