Felicia Yu, M.D., is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor of Health Sciences at the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. Originally from Birmingham, AL, she obtained her B.A. in Art History from Dartmouth College and M.D. from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She completed her internship and residency at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center in Sylmar, CA. In addition, she completed a two-year East-West Primary Care fellowship at the UCLA Center for East West Medicine.
Much like her appreciation for the marriage of apparent opposites: the arts and medicine, she was drawn to the integrative approach of the East-West philosophy of utilizing various treatment modalities with the goal of optimizing quality of life through balance. She is currently involved in helping to build a patient-centered medical home at the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. Her professional interests include East-West nutrition and culinary medicine, preventive medicine, and educating patients on the different approaches to healing.
