American College Of Traditional Chinese Medicine, San Francisco:
The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) is located in San Francisco, California. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient and profound healing art that originated more than 3,000 years ago. It comprises a number of therapeutic practices—among them Chinese herbology, acupuncture, nutrition, Tai Ji Quan and Qigong—that have long-proven efficacy in treating a wide range of disease conditions. Our two degree programs—the Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM) and the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM)—provide a truly exceptional professional education. Additionally, ACTCM’s certificate programs in Tui Na and Shiatsu and its introductory classes for the public offer further opportunities for study to current ACTCM students, healthcare professionals and the general public. ACTCM also offers an optional 4-week study abroad program in Shanghai, China to students of the MSTCM program.

The college is aware that many students are balancing their personal lives, work, and school while attending ACTCM. Because of this, tracks have been put in place which enable students to know their yearly schedules in advance. ACTCM also offers flexibility with the choices of day, evening, and weekend classes on a full, ¾, or part time tracks.

Accreditation and Approval:

ACTCM is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and is approved by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education (BPPVE) as a degree-granting institution. In addition, the program is approved by the California Acupuncture Board, which allows our graduates to sit for the California state exam.

Study Abroad in China:

Students in their third level of the program may participate in an optional clinical training program at Yue Yang Hospital, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. The 4-week study abroad program provides a strong foundation in TCM theory, differential diagnosis and treatment skills. Students work in a hospital in-patient setting and an out-patient clinic, and may concentrate on acupuncture, herbal medicine or tui na.

Students who have completed their first-level comprehensive exams may also participate in a two-week clinical training program at Yue Yang Hospital. Students may concentrate on acupuncture or tui na. Because TCM is practiced in Chinese hospitals as a primary care medical system, students see a large volume of patients and a wide variety of conditions.
