Alicia Derby earned her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2007 after earning a Masters in 2001. She has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Portland State University. Orthopedics, Women's Health, Pediatrics and Geriatrics are areas of extra training and of special interest to her.

Alicia spent five weeks in an extensive training program at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China in 2001 and returned to Chengdu, China for further education in 2007. She has traveled as well to Japan, Mexico and Hawaii to further her training. Alicia's integrative approach to acupuncture supports a comprehensive medical philosophy whereby Western and Chinese Medicine complement each other.

In addition to running her practice in Eugene she is employed at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland. She is the Chair of the Doctoral Clinic and thoroughly enjoys the opportunity to teach the Doctoral students.

"Outside of my practice, I live a very active lifestyle, pursuing activities such as dancing, hiking and running. I enjoy reading, meditating, traveling and spending time with my adult daughters and my two dogs."

I am licensed by the state Oregon and accredited by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in both Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology.
