The clinic also offers customized herbal medicines in the form of dried herbs, pills, plaster, and more.
The UEWM Teaching Clinic represents the integration of health care and education. The treatment is performed by licensed acupuncturists (clinic supervisors) and qualified, supervised clinic interns (advanced level students). The hands-on practice provides students opportunities to serve patients with different cases for more clinical experiences. We committed to provide low-cost and high-quality treatments for patients and the community to get benefit and become more familiar with the principles, health care, and practices of Traditional Chinese medicine.
The UEWM Specialist Clinic is staffed by outstanding professors and experts in Chinese medicine with many years of rich clinical experience to provide the public with excellent comprehensive health care. Some of the more difficult cases may require collaboration between colleagues via telephone, video or in person, in order to find the best treatment plan. Either way, our specialists are here to serve you.
