  • General Information
    About Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine

    The mission of the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine is to train well-prepared and well-rounded practitioners of Oriental medicine. This is achieved by emphasizing active learning with a focus on problem solving in clinically-based, apprentice-like experiences. At the same time, students are exposed to a variety of approaches to Oriental medicine that engenders awareness and respect for the validity of different healing traditions. The entire program is designed to give students a solid grounding in the basics of Oriental medicine and supply the tools and encouragement for students to develop their own approaches. The Seattle Institute's statement of purpose grew out of the founders' belief that education in East Asian medicine is best accomplished in a clinically-based program in which students work in small groups with experienced practitioners. The Seattle Institute fulfills its statement of purpose by offering two Master's degree programs: a Master's in Acupuncture and a Master's in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The school is designed to support its purpose in several distinct ways: A limited number of students are accepted annually to insure a small class setting. Students begin clinical instruction with experienced practitioners in their first trimester to focus on patient care in a clinically-based, apprentice-like experience. Faculty are selected who represent different styles of acupuncture and have extensive experience as practitioners. Students are expected to be independent learners with class time being focused on discussions and labs that go beyond the material available in the texts.
