Our Culture

  • Why Five Branches?

We are a community of accomplished leaders, distinguished faculty and highly competent students who come from around the world representing diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences. This rich, collaborative environment is powered by individuals who share a common goal: to serve humanity, and to transform the worldview of healthcare.

Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy views medicine as a compassionate response to human suffering. At Five Branches, we embrace this philosophy by encouraging supportive and humanistic academic and clinical environments. Our faculty members are chosen not only for academic excellence but for the passion they emanate while teaching and mentoring students. Our students are chosen for intellectual achievement as well as their devotion to improve the lives of others.

Fueled by a shared purpose, we create a culture where students excel in their studies and become exceptional practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine, providing integrative treatment, preventing disease, and promoting optimal well-being for patients.
