Welcome to the World Medicine Institute

World Medicine Institute was established in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1970 to perpetuate a Taoist heritage dating back over 2,000 years to the Han Dynasty. With a Taoist approach to the art of living in the areas of philosophy, medicine, spirituality, and education, we offer unique training in acupuncture and oriental medicine. Additionally, the beauty of Hawai'i provides students with a naturally holistic learning environment.

The World Medicine Institute offers an accredited Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. We are expanding our current program to include the Doctor of Philosophy, Ph.D in Taoist Studies. Our well-established initial Doctoral program is currently being reviewed by a regional agency.

To learn more about our Institute, Taoist healing, and Hawaii, browse through our site and read about the Six Taoist Arts, download the catalog and enjoy our Photo Galleries of Students, Hawaii, and China.
