Message from the President


On behalf of the American International acupuncture Institute, I want to thank you for your interest in our school. You will find that our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing you with a rich educational experience in a professional learning environment. We feel confident that our graduates will be among the most competent practitioners in the field, working for the benefit of society and furthering our understanding of disease and healing.

As dean of the Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture department at Peili University in China, I was fortunate to have gained experience in working with a diverse faculty and instructing a diverse population of students who had accumulated different ideas and methods for healing the sick. This diversity of concepts is reflected in our curriculum and teaching methods, and it provides a standard of inspiration and excellence against which we measure our performance here at the institute. By teaching others who share our commitment to helping the poor and suffering, we carry out our institutional mission to serve the modern community with the ancient medical knowledge of China.

Acupuncture is rapidly gaining more acceptance in American health care. Indeed, more patients now recognize it as an affordable and effective form of alternative or complementary treatment. Thus pursuing a career in acupuncture at this time can be both exciting and rewarding. I hope you will consider the unique advantages of our program and how the Institute can help you toward a successful career as a licensed practitioner of acupuncture.

Finally, I would like to welcome you to visit our school, where you may sit in on a class, talk with students and faculty, and get an idea of what a typical day is like at AIAI. If you have questions about our program, or concerns pertaining to a career in acupuncture, my staff and I will be happy to assist you. Please feel free to contact us. We are open seven days a week and can be reached at 718-853-8606. I look forward to talking with you.
