The Pacific College of Health and Science, in partnership with various local organizations, is proud to serve our community by providing acupuncture and massage services at no cost in a variety of settings throughout San Diego. Off-site clinics are designed to expand the reach of acupuncture and Chinese medicine to settings where patients would typically not have the means or the opportunity to experience them. Pacific College interns who are in the final phase of a rigorous four-year program work under the supervision of highly experienced licensed practitioners. These clinics are often held in an integrative environment that fosters collaboration with biomedical practitioners.

Pacific College San Diego Off-Site Clinics
Rady Children’s Hospital
3010 Children’s Way, Entrance #2, Acute Care Pavilion
San Diego, CA 92123
Days & times: Monday and Thursday 1:00-5:00pm
Patients: please check in at entrance 9, in the Nelson/Hahn Family Pavillion.
The hospital is an unpredictable environment, and as such, adaptability, dependability, and independence are the paramount traits for these interns. We treat all over the hospital including cramped patient rooms, open bays right next to the nurse administering chemo, the parent-family lounge, and cold exam rooms. Though interns primarily treat chronic pain and hematology/oncology, we also treat GI disorder, spinal cord injuries and medically fragile children in long-term care situations. Gentle needle technique, willingness to do massage and tui na, great people skills, and the confidence to be autonomous are a must.

This clinic serves UCSD athletes. Pacific College students are offered the opportunity to treat many types of muscular and skeletal injuries alongside physical therapists and athletic trainers. The pace is fast and the work is very focused on specific problems. Pacific College interns use acupuncture to help rehabilitate post-operative injuries, sports injuries, and athletic performance by increasing range of motion, muscle strength, and tissue healing potential. Students average 3-5 treatments per shift and treatments vary from 15 minutes to one hour. This is an excellent opportunity to learn musculoskeletal assessment and treatment techniques!
