Educational Approach

Your entire educational experience centers on the heart of Chinese medicine – working with people. We emphasize clinical training, hands-on skill building and a foundation in both Eastern tradition and modern science.

Clinical training that is patient-centered:

  • Emphasis on compassionate care
  • Experience that is rich with variety in clinical settings and patient populations
  • Careful supervision – one clinical faculty for every 3 student interns

Intensive hands-on skill development:

  • Skills training begins on day one
  • Skills include point location, needling, accessory techniques and Tui na
  • We emphasize learning by doing – because acupuncture is done with your hands

Foundation in traditional theory and modern science:

  • Education that is strong in the Eastern roots of Chinese medicine
  • Education in the necessary science to bring Eastern tradition to the Western world
