Dear Student,



Piedmont University was established to provide interested students with a quality education in the field of Asian Medicine (AM) using Traditional Asian Medicine philosophies in a western culture. I believe that the training experience at Piedmont University - School of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine (PUAAM) will challenge and motivate you to become a quality practitioner and disciple of the traditional practices of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine.

We are dedicated to the values of excellence and professionalism that will make the academic experience both a rewarding personal and professional growth experience for you as a student. With pride and dedication, our institution has launched a spectrum of innovative formulas, principles, and techniques that will be most valuable for medical science and ultimately for the purpose of relieving patients from painful illnesses. In all of this, we will never lose sight of our desire to serve and to strengthen the community in which we live through sending you who graduate with healing hands.

If you are interested in being an agent of change in this community, you have come to the right place.  We at PUAAM are here to make your dreams and goals a reality, and to provide the course of study that will facilitate your achievement of those noble desires.

It is my honor to invite each and every one of you to participate in this challenging and promising program here at PUAAM. Your experience at PUAAM will open your mind to a whole different level of understanding in the micro-universe of the human body.
