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. Master's students work under the direct supervision of more experienced practitioners as they complete their required 700 hours of clinical education. All of our clinical supervisors have been working for at least five years; many more than 20 years. Students have an opportunity to learn from supervisors while working directly with patients. 

OCOM's Weekend Specialty Clinics are staffed by our doctoral students, licensed practitioners who turn to OCOM to receive advanced training. Supervisors for our doctoral clinics are among the most respected practitioners in the field of Chinese medicine.
