I am a professor in the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program at Northwestern Health Sciences University. I started my traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) study in China in 1978. I received my Traditional Chinese Medicine master of medicine and doctorate degrees in China. During the past 30 years, I have practiced in Chinese hospitals as a TCM doctor. I began practicing and teaching in the United States in 1996.

I strongly believe that a good practitioner must combine TCM theories with modern clinical practices. I also believe that in addition to mastered clinical skills, you need to have compassion for your patient – I stress this to the students I teach and interns I supervise.

As a professor I teach courses in herbal classics, herbal clinical medicine, and herbal formulas and strategies. I also supervise acupuncture and Oriental medicine student interns who are in clinical practice at the University’s teaching clinics.
