Clinic


Our Approach

The Clinic is one of the central components of the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. The clinicians at the Clinic are trained and knowledgeable in both Western biomedicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The principles and techniques of these two medical systems are integrated within a clinical environment as acupuncturists and Western-trained, Board-certified physicians who are trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine work in unison at all stages of patient care and management.
