Student Intern Clinic
The mission of the Internship Clinic is to provide a reality-based clinical training environment for the clinical internship phase of education, to prepare students to become effective interns in an integrated medical setting, to reinforce the student’s practical and conceptual skills gained in didactic coursework, and to train primary care providers within the scope of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practice as defined by California law. Based on the student’s level of mastery and level of internship training, the clinic faculty will actively guide and support the student in assuming greater responsibility for various aspects of patient care leading to almost complete responsibility for patients while under close supervision of clinic faculty in the health care environment.
