Pacific College of Oriental Medicine was founded in 1986 to provide Oriental medical and body therapy education to students from around the world. Since its inception, the College has been at the forefront of educating students and working in conjunction with lawmakers and medical professionals to advance the standards of both the profession and the College’s curriculum. Pacific has received awards for its curriculum and clinical training, as well as research grants from the National Institutes of Health. Our alumni have gone on to be successful in the field and are currently sought after as both teachers and practitioners in the U.S. today.

The spacious campus offers eleven classrooms, administrative offices, an extensive library of Oriental medicine (home to a portion of Dr. Ted Kaptchuk’s collection), and a comfortable student lounge and common area. The facility also houses a large professional acupuncture clinic with 28 treatment beds and an herbal pharmacy for student training. The College has street parking, easy freeway access, and is minutes from shopping centers, beaches, and affordable housing.


  • They were really knowledgeable, friendly, and compassionate. I got my first acupuncture by an intern, under the supervision of a professional, and was impressed by Reina's practice. The vibes were all positive and interactive. She lit mugwort to warm up some of my nerve channels. Overall, great place to get any service done, especially to support students who wish to incorporate their skills and apply them in the real world. I will definitely go back for another appointment.

  • I have always had excellent results when treated by the student-interns at this college with the exception of one session. I turn to acupuncture for a variety of ailments, lateral/medial epicondylitis, asthma, insomnia. Marie G. San Diego CA, Yelp Review
