Pacific College Welcomes Jeffrey Yuen & New Classical Chinese Medicine Program
Pacific College of Oriental Medicine's New York campus welcomes world-renowned Classical Chinese Medicine luminary, Jeffrey Yuen, to its faculty to guide and teach in the college's new Classical Chinese Medicine curriculum starting Fall 2009. From a common foundation, students in the Master's of Science (Acupuncture) program will have the option of selecting a series of Classical Chinese Medicine courses or a series of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and newly-designed physical medicine courses to complete their training in acupuncture. These new majors will complement Pacific's highly regarded TCM/Integrative Medicine curriculum. Students from the Master of Science (Traditional Oriental Medicine) will be able to take courses from either acupuncture major as electives.
"This is a great chance for students to study two respected systems of Chinese medicine," said Gina Lepore, Campus Director of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine's New York campus. "Students do not have to choose between state-of-the-art integrative medicine, and the rich ancestry and deep spirit of Chinese Medicine. They can learn both, choosing a major in Oriental Medicine or Classical Chinese Medicine, while taking additional elective classes to round out their education."
The opportunity to integrate Classical Chinese Medicine into Pacific College's proven curriculum comes from a newly formed relationship with the Swedish Institute. This development allows Pacific College to offer the Classical Chinese acupuncture courses while Swedish focuses on their massage curriculum and other programs. This is a positive step in the long-term growth and development of both institutions that will provide significant benefits to both current students and alumni.
