Dongguk University Los Angeles is located in Koreatown: a vibrant neighborhood filled with restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. Koreatown is conveniently located within five miles of East Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and downtown Los Angeles; communities of distinct personalities and a multitude of places to live and eat. The diversity of the immediate geographic community fosters an enriching learning experience for all students. The school is located near internationally renowned music, film, and theater venues — and not too far from beaches for the summertime and mountains for winter weekend getaways. Easy access to freeways, a 5 minute walk from the red and purple Metro lines, and reliable surface public transportation make our locale attractive to both our students and patients.
DULA is conveniently located in downtown Los Angeles where students are able to experience multicultural activities outside of school, but more importantly, DULA offers students opportunities for multicultural exchanges with faculty and students from other language programs that enhance students’ appreciation and comprehension of East Asian Medicine and culture. DULA offers students opportunities from respective language programs to audit classes from other language programs to encourage students who are motivated and eager to reinforce comprehension of course topics in another language.
DULA offers externship opportunities to observe and/or treat patients at the AIDS Health Foundation (AHF) Healthcare Center at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, which gives students a broader clinical training.
