Welcome to the World Medicine Institute
School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine
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.
