Life as a Student
Become a student at PIHMA for a career in healing
Your Journey Starts Now
PIHMA is so much more than a school that teaches healing technique. Although our instructors are highly-experienced and committed to excellence, it is three types of core values we share with our students that sets us apart. Accountability (Serve Compassionately, Act with Integrity, Practice Gratitude), Quality (Foster Innovation, Commit to Excellence, Cultivate Success) and Development (Grow Thoughtfully, Respect the Individual, Build Community), are the driving forces behind all we do so that students can serve others with an open heart.
Joining PIHMA means that your education will be well‐grounded in the practical and theoretical concepts of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. In our growth and evolution as a college, we acknowledge the connection and the shared values, principles and practices of other related traditional and integrative medicines.
