My father is a medical doctor and a pain specialist. He trained in Germany and worked in the pain clinic at a Halifax hospital. Because of his European background he believes in acupuncture and wanted me to train in acupuncture as well as Western medicine. As a result of my university schedule, I am only sharing one year with CCATCM’s founding class which I feel honoured to do. Besides 2 years of acupuncture training at CCATCM, I will train at Chinese colleges and their hospitals. I believe in acupuncture and integrative medicine and look forward to the day I get to treat my own patients.
