Thank you for choosing the Chicago College of Oriental Medicine. The goal of CCOM is to provide future practitioners of Traditional Chinese medicine with the academic foundation and best practices of Oriental medicine that will enable them to either practice as Acupuncturist or integrate their education with Western medicine to provide broader health care options for the general public. Traditional Chinese medicine has been my life for over 25 years. It brings me great joy to practice this time honored profession. My dream, through CCOM, is to introduce you to the satisfaction this holistic learning experience will bring to you as a professional and as a person.
If, at anytime, you have questions or concerns please contact any of the faculty and staff. It is imperative that we build a culture of excellence and continuous improvement. Your input, therefore, is critical to our growth and development. That you are here says that you care about others and want to heal the hurting. Together we can make you better than you were with more to give to the patients who come to you for care.
I am honored that you are with us and I wish you all the best.
Dr. Yong Gao Wang.
