Study Acupuncture at Wongu
Sept. 26, 2012
-- On October 1st, 2012, Wongu University celebrates its historical moment. Wongu University has successfully obtained the approvals from the State of Nevada’s Board of Oriental Medicine as well as Nevada’s commission on Postsecondary education. Wongu is the first Oriental Medicine school in the state of Nevada, and offers a degree in Master of Science in Oriental Medicine. October 1st, 2012 is the day Wongu University will hold its Opening day and Orientation. Wongu boasts its comprehensive curriculum, which has met Nevada’s academically rigorous standards, and is fully committed to training students that will provide alternative modes of healing for the citizens of Las Vegas, the state of Nevada, and beyond.
Oriental Medicine is an ancient traditional practice encompassing complementary treatments that have been practiced in the East for millenia. It offers a holistic approach to health through gentle, non-invasive treatment methods such as acupuncture, herbology, Tuina, cupping and moxibustion, with the ultimate goal of restoring the body’s natural balance. Oriental medicine has been quickly gaining international recognition and complementary medical programs are gradually being integrated in hospitals throughout the United States.
Wongu’s primary mission is to widen the benefits of acupuncture and Oriental medicine by providing students with an exceptional, comprehensive education with its highly trained faculty and additional clinical hours. Its program will allow students to participate in Wongu’s clinical internship program which, with the guidance of experienced medical staff, will provide students with 1,000 hours of hands-on clinical practice in its new clinic. Wongu's premier clinic is scheduled to open in Summer 2013 and will offer acupuncture treatments and more to patients.
In terms of location, Las Vegas is a growing city with a high demand for Doctors of Oriental Medicine. It is one of the major international hubs and highly promising hot spot for alternative medicine. Ultimately, Wongu will be able to achieve its final goal which is for its students to become fully trained, caring medical professionals, capable of building solid careers and improving the lives of their patients.
