Life at ACTCM

Seneca4 Remington2 Dannyquote Francine2

The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine has 200 students and a small, intimate campus. Students enjoy a low faculty to student ratio, small classes, and close connections with each other and alumni.


ACTCM’s campuses are located on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood and at the Main campus for CIIS on Mission Street. Potrero Hill is close to downtown and a picturesque part of the city that is easy to commute to. San Francisco is a dynamic city that is a cultural, culinary, and financial center with a diverse population. Students enjoy great concerts, nightlife, beaches, nearby forests, and great weather!

The city’s diversity is also reflected in the populations of patients at our clinics, giving students a broad clinical experience. Our on-site teaching clinic is open to the public. Student practitioners partner with faculty advisers and receive hands-on experience.

Danny Geren is a graduate from ACTCM (MSTCM | DAOM) and is now a faculty member at ACTCM at CIIS. Watch this video to learn more about his special relationship with ACTCM.

When Danny Geren was a Masters student at ACTCM, he built close bonds with faculty members. Even though he’s graduated, Dr. Geren has kept those bonds, and his former teachers continue to give him feedback and help him with his practice. Danny pays that caring attention forward through teaching Fundamental TCM theory and other courses at ACTCM. Students find his courses to be a crucial factor in their academic success. Play the video above to learn more about Danny and his experiences with ACTCM.
