Patient care is at the heart of OCOM's educational program. We are able to offer affordable acupuncture, herbal consultation, and massage for the public thanks to our teaching clinics. 

OCOM students, in their final year of study, work under the direct supervision of more experienced practitioners as they complete their required clinical education hours. All of our clinical supervisors have been working for at least five years; many more than 20 years. Our master’s and doctoral students learn from supervisors while working directly with patients. 

Weekend Specialty Clinics are staffed by our DAOM students, licensed practitioners receiving advanced training. Supervisors for our doctoral clinics are among the most respected practitioners in the field of Chinese medicine.
