We welcome you to explore our coastal campus in Santa Cruz, California where our TCM Master’s daytime program and health center have resided for over a quarter of a century. Santa Cruz is renowned for its beautiful beaches and redwood forests, fresh ocean air, mild weather and year-round cultural and recreational activities.

Our English and Chinese Doctorate and Master’s are available in daytime programs. Our flexible programs provide you with the option to complete the program on a full or part-time basis. While on campus, review our doctoral program schedule of events, providing licensed acupuncturists the opportunity to train with TCM and Western medicine experts from China and Stanford University.
