The history of Oriental medicine spans centuries and nations. Pacific College of Oriental Medicine has assembled an expert and varied academic team, respected both in the US and abroad, to do justice to this expansive body of knowledge. Faculty members have been selected for their ability to convey both a deep appreciation of traditional Oriental medicine and massage and an understanding of the problems that affect patients in today's modern culture. From acupuncturists and medical doctors to massage therapists and Taoist priests, PCOM's faculty will be an essential and continuing resource during your education and beyond into private practice. PCOM employs nearly 200 faculty members at its three campuses. Because the faculty is our most valuable resource, we hope you visit at least one of our campuses and sit in on some classes to experience their magic firsthand.
