Our city is known throughout the country for its trendsetting local food scene, a commitment to sustainability, and a vibrant urban area. Portland boasts an award-winning public transportation system and the highest percentage of commuter bicyclists in the United States. An hour’s drive to the east presents you with scenic Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge, while stunning ocean beaches are just 90 minutes to the west.
Our home in Old Town Chinatown positions the college in the heart of the city, with easy access to restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, music venues and parks. OCOM is one of a number of complementary and alternative medicine schools in the area, confirming that Portland is the perfect setting in which to study and practice the medicine.
We look forward to welcoming you to our state-of-the-art campus in the heart of Portland, and we recommend all prospective students make this a top priority in their decision making process.
