“Classical texts are the source and origin of classical Chinese medicine. I feel very fortunate to be able to study and teach them. They are not just theoretical discourses, but very practical clinical manuals. I apply them in clinic and am often amazed by the effectiveness of original instructions in the classics.”
Dr. Joon Hee Lee is fluent in classical literary Chinese and continues to discover wisdom and insights from the classical texts. He is also knowledgeable in the literature from Korea and Japan, and well-informed in the medical traditions of these East Asian countries. Dr. Lee completed his Master of Science in Oriental Medicine degree at Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, California, in 2004; and Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2010.
Dr. Lee has been with NUNM since 2011, and teaches both academic and clinical courses. “I really enjoy teaching and helping students achieve their goals. I love our students. They are motivated to learn, and come with genuinely warm hearts to help other people.”
