The Won Institute's Acupuncture Studies Program is an accredited 3-year Master's Degree in Acupuncture. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of Chinese medical theory and the ancient and modern uses of acupuncture. Western biomedical sciences are also taught to develop informed practitioners capable of communicating across medical disciplines and in integrated healthcare settings.
Rigorous academic instruction and early clinical exposure are hallmarks of the program. Students observe experienced faculty practicing many styles of acupuncture and related techniques. Instruction in two traditions of Acupuncture – Traditional Chinese Medicine and Five Element Acupuncture – form the foundations of our acupuncture training.
The Won Institute recognizes the intrinsic value of compassion in human interaction and in all healing endeavors. To teach compassion and awareness, meditation training is woven throughout the entire curriculum. Continuity in this practice engages the student in a process of personal exploration and professional development to enhance compassion and awareness.
The Acupuncture Studies program has graduated 66 students since 2008. Graduates of our program have a 98% pass rate for the national board exams with 61 of our alumni licensed in Pennsylvania. Our graduates work in a variety of clinics including wellness centers, community acupuncture clinics, traditional medical clinics, and hospitals. Some graduates have even returned to the Won Institute as adjunct faculty members.
