The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is a private, for-profit college in the United States, with campuses in San Diego, New York, and Chicago. The college is institutionally-accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission[1] and programatically-accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM).[2] The College works in conjunction with lawmakers and medical professionals to advance the standards of the holistic medicine profession. Pacific College has received awards for its acupuncture and Oriental medicine curriculum and clinical training, as well as research grants from the National Institutes of Health and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, among others.


In 1986, the California Acupuncture College (CAC) in San Diego closed, leaving many acupuncture students adrift, as it was the only acupuncture school in the city[3]. Joseph Lazzaro, Richard Gold, Ana de Vedia, and Alex Tiberi, all former administrators or faculty of the CAC, founded Pacific College to ensure that the stranded CAC students could complete their studies and take the California licensing exam. In 1988, Jack Miller, a graduate of the last 1986 class of the California Acupuncture College, was hired and made a full partner to aid in the college’s drive towards accreditation.
