Experts Teach Physicians About Acupuncture

Experts Teach Physicians About Acupuncture. While patients’ appetite for complementary and alternative medicine has increased, many of these modalities are not taught in medical school. Acupuncture has been practiced in China for nearly 3 millennia. In a few decades the practice has spread worldwide. Yet, how does Acupuncture work? What conditions can acupuncture treat? And how can we find skilled acupuncture practitioners?

For these questions and more, we’ve invited two of Ohio State University’s Integrative Medicine experts. Welcome Dr David Wang who trained as a physician and as a scientist in China. He practiced medicine in Beijing prior to moving to the United States where he has been practicing acupuncture since 1995. He has been a faculty member at Ohio State University Center for Integrative Medicine now since 2005 and is nationally recognized and active in multiple Traditional Chinese Medicine professional organizations. Alongside David, we have Dr Linda Chun, who is an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and fellowship trained in Integrative Medicine. She serves as the program director of Ohio State University’s Integrative Medicine Fellowship.
