Dr. Xiaojing Zhou graduated from Shandong Medical University in Jinan, China. After practicing internal medicine for three doctor zhou headshotyears in a Shanghai city hospital, she pursued a post-graduate degree in integrative medicine from Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. There, she taught as an associate professor and worked as a doctor of integrative medicine in one of the university’s affiliated hospitals, specializing in nephrology. She treated patients with a combination of western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, employing western medication, hemodialysis and Chinese herbs.

While in China, she did research on chronic renal failure and diabetic nephropathy, and worked on research programs under the auspices of the National Science Foundation of China. She spoke at several conferences in China and the United States regarding the application of herbal medicine in certain conditions, such as kidney stones. Her research articles have been published in the Journal of Chinese Integrative Medicine, as well as in Global Advances in Health and Medicine and in the Developmental Biology journal.

She came to the United States as a visiting scholar at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in 2004.  While there, she worked on research in both neurology and nephrology. Afterwards, she taught at Midwest College of Oriental Medicine.

Now a full-time professor on the faculty of National University of Health Sciences, Dr. Zhou teaches courses in pathology, microbiology, botanical medicine and western medical terminology. She also supervises interns in the clinical phase of their training at National University’s on-campus integrative medicine clinic.

Dr. Zhou enjoys her busy schedule at NUHS. “I feel the MSAc and MSOM programs are really focused here on raising the student’s technique level. The faculty here offers the highest quality classes. We work hard because we know the students are also working hard to become the best medical professionals they can be.”
