Acupuncture School Clinic

AMC's Community Intern Clinic opened its doors to serve the public in 1990 and is currently seeing patients 32 hours each week. The Clinic offers low cost quality health care to the community and provides a place for our Chinese Medicine Interns and our Massage Therapy Interns to do their supervised clinical observation and practice. All students can receive treatment at no charge in the Community Clinic.
