Portland, October 5th. Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) supporters celebrated the grand opening of their new campus in Portland’s historic Old Town Chinatown with a public ribbon-cutting ceremony. On hand to celebrate were Scott Dunbar, Gretchen Horton, Dr. Hong Jin, and Glenn Fee.
OCOM’s relocation to downtown from outer Southeast Portland marks an historic moment in the life of the college. The new campus, a LEED Gold certified renovation of the 100-year-old former Globe Hotel/Import Plaza, nearly doubles the college’s square footage, allowing OCOM to educate more acupuncture and Oriental medicine master’s and doctoral students each year.
The new campus also supports the expansion of clinic services, research efforts, public programs and community wellness activities, and brings nearly 400 students, faculty, staff and patients into the revitalized Old Town Chinatown.
Founded in 1983, Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) is a single-purpose professional graduate school that offers two specialized degree programs — Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) and Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). OCOM’s mission and vision is the transformation of health care through the application of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM).
