MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ASIAN MEDICINE (M.S.A.M.)

The Master of Science in Asian Medicine program emphasizes the unified understanding of the mind, body and spirit inherent in traditional Chinese medicine. Mastery of Asian medicine includes acupuncture as well as herbology expertise. The University has gathered a faculty committed to academic and professional excellence and to teaching the extensive body of knowledge and skills necessary for safe and effective practice. A hallmark of the Master’s program is its extensive clinical training. The training includes practical skills instruction and clinical observation, followed by a yearlong clinical internship during which student- interns treat patients in a variety of clinical settings under the guidance of expert practitioners. As they progress through the internship phase, the students assume increasing levels of responsibility for patient care, and ultimately learn how to practice as independent healthcare providers.
