Those who choose to do the internship first will not need their license before starting.

As the Acupuncturist you will be is responsible for conducting diagnostic investigation; creating, following through with, and recording treatment plans; directing and instructing your very own assistant ; and interacting with patients, staff and other providers in a professional manner. We provide an opportunity for you to focus on patient care.

Located in the majestic mountain surrounded Mat-Su Valley of Alaska, our clinic treats mainly pain and neuropathic conditions with a secondary emphasis on TCM and internal medicine. Our aim is to combine time-proven traditional medical practices with contemporary examinations and therapeutic techniques.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Contemporary Allopathic Medicine tend to view disease differently and tend to convey those views differently enough that to one the other seems gibberish, charlatanistic, naive, over-complex, or oversimplified. Our aim is to bridge this existing gap and to build unity and understanding in the medical community. So at our clinic there is no East vs West or old vs new. We combine the knowledge we have available to us and learn to convey it in a language that others can understand.
