The Commonwealth of Virginia is home to three acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine schools: Kings Park University, South Baylo University, and the Virginia University of Oriental Medicine. With a strong population of acupuncture students in Virginia, ASVA is working hard to create programs and scholarships that support and encourage their involvement in the profession. Students at all three institutions have expressed an interested in shadowing licensed professionals within the state to better understand the ins and outs of private practice.
Mentors can decide how active they want to be in the mentoring process. You can allow students to shadow you during a visit to your office or simply connect with them via e-mail or phone. If you are interested in becoming a mentor for Virginia acupuncture students, please contact Aubry Fisher or Jennifer Yeh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
