Master of Oriental Medicine
Built on the foundation of MUIH’s renowned Master of Acupuncture, the first accredited acupuncture program in the United States, the Master of Oriental Medicine integrates acupuncture with a deep concentration in the study of Chinese herbs.
The Master of Oriental Medicine is designed to blend ancient healing traditions with contemporary science as the basis for treating the whole person. The program provides a comprehensive understanding of the classical and theoretical foundations of the field of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, provides a focus on the Constitutional Five Element Acupuncture tradition and Eight Principle treatment strategies, and introduces students to biomedicine from an integrative and holistic perspective, as needed for the practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine.
The program emphasizes self-cultivation and “healership” – offering students a rigorous, transformative, and relationship-centered curriculum that acknowledges the complex interrelationship between body, mind, and spirit. The program also provides a solid foundation in practice management and the skills necessary to build a practice or enter the work force and participate in today’s growing healthcare field.
