CSUF Internship Program

East West Medical Group offers a hands-on, service-oriented internship program for students from CSUF (California State University, Fullerton) who are looking to fulfill their academic/college internship credit requirements. Our internship is registered with and approved by the Center for Internship & Community Engagement (CICE) office at CSUF.


During the program, students will be exposed to a wide variety of chronic conditions while under the supervision of multiple specialists in the field of internal medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy. In addition to shadowing, select individual(s) from our faculty will be giving lectures on various medical concepts.

Most of our interns have been in Health Science, Biology, Kinesiology, or any Health-Related Majors who are enrolled in an upper-division internship course (i.e. 495 series). Applicants should be actively pursuing a career as a healthcare professional. Although CSUF students will receive priority, the program will also consider applicants who are not CSUF students but have an exceptional and demonstrative passion for holistic healthcare and integrative medicine.
