Opportunities for ACTCM Students at the California Pacific Medical Center 

ACTCM at CIIS offers 5 off-site clinics that students have the opportunity to complete an externship at. The California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is one such clinic available for MSTCM and DACM students who want to focus on pain management, rehabilitation, speech therapy, motor coordination, and other specializations.

Admissions counselor, Hannah Strack, and licensed practitioner/adjunct clinic supervisor, Dr. Kathryn Ryan, discuss ACTCM’s partnership with CPMC and share how you can do clinical rotations in one of the largest private, not-for-profit, academic medical centers in California.
