A Letter to the Yo San University Community
From the Office of the President
July 1, 2015
 
Dear Students, Alumni, Faculty and Friends of YSU,
 
Today, after months of careful assessment and planning, I am pleased to announce the establishment of three advanced concentrations that will be available for our MATCM students, beginning with the Fall 2015 trimester. This timely curriculum update reflects our recognition of the rapid evolution of healthcare towards a more holistic and integrative model. It also underscores YSU's commitment to provide our students with an exceptional acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine education, and the skills and knowledge necessary for success.
   
The three new concentrations are:
Taoism & Qi Cultivation
Women's & Children's Health
Acupuncture Orthopedics & Pain Management
 
We chose these areas of focus with intention. First, we requested input from our core constituents: students, alumni faculty, staff, board, patients and strategic partners, many of whom are recognized leaders in the field. Then, through our strategic planning efforts, we delved into their feedback and analyzed internal and external data regarding market and healthcare trends. In our selection of concentrations, it is important for all to understand the imperative to stay true to the founding principles of the University, while enhancing the body of relevant educational instruction. I am confident that this change in curriculum will ensure students are even better prepared to improve the health and wellness of their patients and communities. The enhanced course offerings also will enable them to move more confidently into an increasingly interdisciplinary and integrative care environment.
 
We are pleased that this fundamental update is being accomplished without adding to the length or cost of our program. Historically, students have been required to take 12 Qi units as part of their MATCM curriculum, and the new curriculum will maintain our market-distinctive Qi program, in that all students will continue to take six units of Qi Cultivation, in addition to three units of Taoist studies. However, each student will now be able to select a six-unit advanced concentration in Women's and Children's Health, Acupuncture Orthopedics & Pain Management or Taoism & Qi Cultivation. For even greater flexibility, it will be possible to create a unique interdisciplinary course combination. 

The demand for integrative TCM is growing. Yo San University is excited to be stepping up to meet this demand with meaningful curriculum innovation, and we will be further expanding on these efforts in the months ahead. I am confident that our students and graduates will continue to distinguish themselves for their deep commitment to personal growth and professional excellence. We are honored to be educating the next generation of healthcare. 
 
Sincerely,
    
Lois Green
President

We teach Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including medical qigong, tai chi, herbal medicine, tui-na, and nutrition. The University also operates a community clinic. Our program places particular attention on prevention, balance and wellness and on the value brought to the medicine by 38 generations of Ni family practice. Students earn a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and TCM, and may pursue advanced studies leading to a Doctoral Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in one of our specialties. Our mission is to help students cultivate a healthy mind, body and spirit and to prepare them for successful futures as healthcare providers.  We are a strong supportive community. Encounter us in the hall and it’s clear, Yo San University is a well-lived and well-loved place where students come to learn, practice, grow, meet and be with new and old friends.

I went to this school for treatment from one of their doctors years ago. She told me that some people are just meant to die? While they may help some people, they sent me away very ill. Good luck if you go anywhere near this place.
