We Are SCU

SCU thrives on the notion that healthcare is essential to changing the world. We are deeply committed to our mission of developing students into caring, competent, and integrative practitioners who are making a world of difference as members of their communities and leaders in the future of integrative healthcare.

Our impact is not just here and now, nor is it bound to classrooms and clinics throughout greater Los Angeles. It extends across the world and well into the future as today’s students and alumni are prepared to lead the healthcare system of tomorrow.

Our Culture

Dedication to our core values of grit, transparency, and a sense of humor; and shared respect for a diversity of ideas, beliefs, and cultures— is the cornerstone of our thriving culture at SCU.
