I attended before the merger with MCPHS - when the school was still in Watertown, MA. I chose the school largely for the comprehensive Japanese Acupuncture program. All things considered it was a great experience. As it is a larger school, the practice clinic options were plentiful and busy, with standouts such as the Dimock Center - a large public health clinic in Roxbury. There were very strong faculty in all of the key positions of the school with a good mix of backgrounds to offer dynamic approaches to the material. A few of the adjuncts were not stellar, but that's expected in a school of that size and, ultimately, it wasn't anything that diminished the overall experience.
Outside of the normal critiques of most (all?) acupuncture schools such as proper business training to actually start and run a practice (also missing in most/all medical schools), I felt (and most of of my colleagues would agree I believe) well prepared to get into full-time practice right out of school.

I am very pleased with the education I received from PCHS San Diego. Every instructor had 10-20+ years of experience they drew on. Their teaching was Doctorate level in every single class! Zoom classes were fun and engaging, provoked thought and research and the assignments were challenging, research based and relevant to the class matter. Every instructor started, took breaks and ended on time. There were interesting break out sessions with other classmates. I have been nothing but impressed with the quality at this school. Should be higher ranked than it is currently.

This school started off well. But there were alot of changes in staff and faculty in 2018-19 and the quality of education took a serious downturn. The tuition is expensive but many instructors teaching is at high school level at best. Many have never successfully run their own practices. The herbs program is well taught but could have been more hands on than lecture. Clinics were good practice but no supervisor ever challenged the thought processes behind why we had a particular diagnosis. No treatment plan strategies were ever taught. The school Is run by a person who comes from western medicine. While integration is a good thing, how they handled Covid was more fear based than in the belief of what Eastern medicine can offer. There was also vax shaming. Very disappointing. It should have been an opportunity to shine instead of cower and hide. I do not believe this school should be in the top 10 acupuncture schools anymore. Maybe it can rank at 18.
