Medical Services is now offering acupuncture services, in partnership with the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM). Columbia students enrolled in Columbia Health may receive up to five sessions at Medical Services, when referred by their Medical Services provider. Students can make an appointment with their Medical Services provider to discuss their needs for acupuncture services.
Acupuncture services are held one morning weekly. The first visit will include a comprehensive evaluation and may take up to two hours. Each additional session is typically one hour.
Acupuncture is a complementary modality that works together with conventional medicine. The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is the largest Chinese medical college in the United States. Sessions are administered by PCOM interns and supervised by licensed acupuncturist.
