Your desire to serve and support a holistic, integrative approach to healthcare is a calling!

At Pacific College of Health and Science (PCHS), you will thrive in a like-minded community of passionate, highly educated holistic and integrative medicine advocates such as yourself.

Deeply rooted in Chinese medicine (eastern medicine) since 1986, and still the largest school of Chinese medicine in the US, Pacific College (formerly Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, or PCOM) has expanded in the past few years to offer other holistic health certificates and integrative medicine degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate levels.

Whether you are seeking an online nursing program with holistic nursing, a massage therapy school that combines medical massage and Eastern bodywork, or even an accredited medical cannabis certificate, you will find that Pacific College offers convenient, online programs both self-paced or live across many time zones, as well as beautiful ground campuses:

Pacific People

Is Pacific College right for you?

Since our inception, the Pacific College community has believed that health is more than the absence of disease. Health must include the balance of the mind, body, and spirit.

Like you, Pacific College views medicine as preventative, holistic, and patient-centered.

Today, Pacific College (formerly Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, or PCOM) is the established leader of acupuncture and East Asian medicine education in the United States. As such, we are now actively championing the expansion of these principles to other healthcare disciplines, such as with Pacific College’s holistic nursing programs.

With this ongoing expansion of the original vision, three strong pillars have emerged:

Education Icon

Your Education

The college continues to expand its vision of standing as the “recognized leader in delivering traditional medicine and integrative health science education to practitioners and the public”. Beyond its existing medical cannabis certificate, massage therapy programs, and acupuncture and Chinese medicine programs, PCHS is expanding its holistic nursing division and gearing up to launch a new groundbreaking undergraduate program in 2024. Stay tuned for more on this soon!

Community Icon

Your Community

We believe in fostering a strong culture of loving kindness and community support, with benefits and resources that reflect our body/mind/spirit values. As PCHS continues to grow, we now have faculty and staff in 27 states! We stream the yearly Pacific Symposium and other online events around the world. Recently, we also expanded alumni services with the Pacific College Alumni Network (PCAN) platform; are currently adding new courses to our continuing education catalog, the Pacific Center for Lifelong Learning; founded a dedicated EDI Committee; and expanded local Student Council activities.

Your On-Campus Wellness Clinics

We currently treat over 50,000 patients a year and have an extensive network of offsite clinic opportunities, from the University of California - San Diego Heath Center to the New York Harm Reduction Clinic. In 2022, we brought electronic health records into the campus clinics. In 2023, we will continue to develop the clinics into multidisciplinary wellness centers and lay the groundwork for the incorporation of holistic nurses to the clinic teams.

As a community, we view each of these three pillars as equally important and strive to achieve balance between them.
