Hyundo Kim, PhD, MSOM, LAc

"My goal is to make sure that students have the confidence to operate as a sole practitioner when they graduate. Extensive clinical intern experience and one-to-one access to faculty clinicians are keys to building that confidence."

Yihyun Kwon, PhD, DC, MSOM, LAc

"When you are out there practicing as an acupuncturist or as an oriental medical practitioner, you will have to interact with DCs, NDs, and MDs. If you have no access to them while you are in school and don't understand their perspective, you will be at a disadvantage."
