Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine Program

The Won Institute’s Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine program allows practitioners to better address disease, ailments and illness with their patients. Our Chinese Herbal Medicine school focuses on the therapeutic use of Chinese herbal medicine with an emphasis on classical and modern approaches to treatment to elevate their current acupuncture practice. The experienced faculty at the Won Institute provide instruction and insight that allow students to develop an understanding of Chinese herbology and medicine by learning the use of over 300 Chinese herbs and how to combine more than 100 common herbal formulas. Students learn how to use acupuncture in combination with Chinese herbal medicine to treat patients’ internal conditions. 

We offer an innovative hybrid program with lecture courses held online in both synchronous and asynchronous format. Students are required to be on-site a few weekends per term for clinical requirements including Clinical Observation and Clinical Internship. 10-17 hours of online asynchronous self-paced work is estimated weekly.
