Selena Chan, DO

Integrative Psychiatrist
Clinical Fellow

Selena Chan, DO is a board-certified psychiatrist and clinical fellow at the Osher Center.  She hopes to continue to connect with patients from an array of cultures and lifestyles, as she did during her psychiatry residency at the University of Hawaii.

Dr. Chan’s work to date has highlighted the importance of personalized medicine for her.  She embraces combining the strengths of conventional medicine and complementary modalities and invites patients to become active participants in their healthcare.  The impact of offering an individual a wide range of tools to enhance their well-being while motivating others to achieve their best quality of life fueled her interest in pursuing further training in Integrative Medicine.

Dr. Chan’s appreciation for a whole-person approach was cultivated throughout her medical training at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine.  As Vice President of the Integrative Medicine club, she enjoyed promoting medical student wellness and advocating awareness of interdisciplinary healthcare.  She values collaborative partnerships invested in the wellness of each patient, the treatment team and the academic community.  She is passionate about medical student and resident education, self-care of healers and she looks forward to developing an Integrative Psychiatry curriculum with her mentors at UCSF.

Prior to medical school, Dr. Chan spent one year working at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.  There, she explored evidence-informed modalities that support the body’s inherent healing potential.  She received her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from the University of Pittsburgh, where she also served as a CDC Center for Healthy Aging intern, PittMed Integrative Health Interest Group liaison, and AMSA Preventive Medicine chair.
