A college of Oriental medicine is a place of learning and growth. It is a place of exploration and discovery. It is also a place of healing and balance. At Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM), located at 75 NW Couch St, Portland, OR 97209, USA, we strive to create a community where students can explore the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine, experiment with the modern practices of herbalism, and gain insight into their own health and well-being.
We believe in empowering our students to make informed decisions about their health and to become active participants in their own healing process.
