Student Director, Chris Goodman-Smith, MD is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco. Chris is particularly driven by his interests in the intersections between Chinese and Western medicines and opportunities to integrate the two systems of healing.
Chris studied acupuncture and theory at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences in Beijing, China before receiving a medical degree at UERM Medical Center in Manila, Philippines. Throughout his studies, he’s been inspired by practitioners, teachers, and mentors who have modeled the kind of compassionate, patient-centered care that he hopes to provide one day.
