This school does not adequately prepare it’s students to practice as licensed acupuncturists. I am a recent graduate from this program, and the vast majority of my classmates have been unable to pass their board exams on the first attempt, due to such poor preparation by this program. After speaking with many members of other graduating classes in recent years, I have learned this is a well known issue to the school. For many years now graduates have approached the school, after graduation, making it known that their program is sub-par in the world of Chinese medicine. The academic dean personally assured my classmates and I that we WOULD be prepared for these exams, and it was simply a smile and lip service to keep us enrolled. Further, many of the administrators are not respectful of students and the program runs students into the ground, unecessarily, much of it based on personal qualities or personalities, vs actual academic concerns or behavioral issues. I WISH I had found this page 4 years ago. The school is great at selling itself and projecting a ” family, loving, kindness atmosphere” upon arrival and during the first stages of becoming a students. But, all of the hell you will endure while a student here is NOT worth it. Especially, when graduation aka reality hits and you realize you are DRASTICALLY unprepared for board exams. After graduation, expect to spend at least a year to two years of self study (flailing) searching out tools to learn everything they didn’t teach you while you we’re paying to be taught. It’s beyond frustrating. Check out Dxxxxx Rxxxx or any other school that may interest you. AVOID this place. .
