Welcome to the World Medicine Institute

World Medicine Institute was first 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 Arts of Living in the areas of philosophy, medicine, spirituality, and education, we offer unique training in Traditional Chinese Medicine - Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Taoist healing traditions. The beauty of Hawai'i provides students a natural and holistic learning environment.

The World Medicine Institute offers an accredited Masters degree in Acupuncture and Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.
