I started receiving acupuncture at a young age from my mother and father who are both doctors of TCM. First hand I know acupuncture works. I am studying to become a medical doctor but I feel I need to learn both Eastern and Western medicine and how to fully integrate them so I can help my patients more effectively. I am honoured to study with the founding class as I attend Dalhousie University. Besides two years study at CCATCM, I will also study and train in China at Beijing and Guangzhou Chinese Medical Universities and their hospitals. I believe this TCM education will give me an opportunity to practice integrative medicine and make me a better doctor.
