  • University of Southern California School of Pharmacy
  • University of California, San Francisco School of Pharmacy
  • Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, San Diego, California
  • Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Santa Monica, California
  • Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Los Angeles, California
  • Bastyr University, Seattle, Washington
  • Five Branches Institute, San Jose, California
  • Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, Portland, Oregon
  • Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin, Texas
  • Southern California University of Health Sciences, Whittier, California

Dr. Chen is currently a member of the Herbal Medicine Committee for the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine; he is an herbal consultant for the California State Oriental Medical Association and is on the review/editorial committee for American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, the University of Arizona Integrative Medicine Program, and the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture.

Dr. Chen has published numerous articles and several books. His most recently published works are Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology (2003, AOM Press) and Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications (2008, AOM Press) for which he was lead author.

“The effectiveness of treatment is of utmost concern to me, for each and every patient. The safety, quality, and potency of the herbs are crucial factors in determining treatment outcome. My goal is to make both Western and Oriental medical communities aware of herbal alternatives to drugs, and of the importance of identifying herb-drug interactions. I hope to see us eventually bridging the gap between Eastern and Western medicine by integrating use of herbs and related TCM modalities with modern technological medicine.”
