California Trinity University’s clinic primary objective is to provide students with clinical training in traditional Oriental medical skills within the clinic. The clinic exists for three purposes: First, to provide the Los Angeles community with high quality, low-cost access to traditional Oriental medical care; second, to train students of traditional Oriental medicine in the necessary skills to practice; and third, to advance the field of traditional Oriental medicine in the United States through patient interaction.
California Trinity University has a community-oriented teaching clinic. Our mission is to provide effective, affordable treatment for a wide variety of conditions and diseases using acupuncture, herbs and other healing modalities of Traditional Oriental Medicine. Our clinical faculty consists of extensively-trained practitioners who have been selected for their expertise, working in integrative medicine, and thorough knowledge of today’s health conditions. The clinic features its own full-service herbal pharmacy that carries an extensive selection of high-quality raw herbs, powdered herbs and patent medicines. In addition to CTU’s on-site clinic, CTU’s clinical faculty and interns work in collaboration with high quality patient-care and education. We provide our interns with the opportunity to do clinical rotations in diverse settings.
Clinical interns in our program are taught by experts in Traditional Oriental Medicine and healing techniques. Initially, students enter the Clinic as observers and gradually work their way up to pre-intern and intern levels. Our Clinic enables students to integrate their classroom knowledge and refine their skills under the supervision of experienced practitioners to ensure that patients get the best medical care. Interns will treat patients under the direct supervision of clinical faculty who are California licensed Acupuncturists. They will typically treat and see diverse health complaints including pain, women’s issues, smoking cessation, depression, anxiety, stress, injury, and more. At this location, interns have full access to multiple treatment methods including acupuncture, moxabustion, electrostimulation, cupping, Tui-Na/Shiatsu massage, and herbal prescriptions.
