ABOUT YSU

Yo San University, a non-profit organization, educates students to become exceptional practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Taoist healing arts. The school facilitates the development of students’ spiritual and professional growth, and provides the community with an integrative medical care model and services.

Yo San University (YSU) was founded by brothers Dr. Daoshing Ni and Dr. Mao Shing Ni, who named the University after their grandfather, Master Yo-San Ni, a healer and teacher in the Taoist tradition. The Ni family enjoys a rare, unbroken lineage of 38 generations of Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners. YSU was established to carry on this lineage; to promote standards of educational excellence in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine; and to establish a program in this country that fosters the medicine’s Taoist roots. The Ni brothers’ father, Master Hua-Ching Ni, a well-known practitioner and educator in Los Angeles, served as University Chancellor in the early years. Our first first class of eight students began their studies in January 1989.

From those modest beginnings, the University now has some 200 students in our Master’s and Doctoral degree programs. They come from around the globe and bring a richness of experience and perspective to every class. The Yo San University Community Clinic not only serves as a training center for our students, but also provides residents of the West L.A. area with affordable acupuncture and TCM.


EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Yo San University is an academically rigorous community with high standards. Our commitment to your professional career goals and personal growth come through in all facets of YSU and rooted in our educational process.

We offer two degrees. The Master’s of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine leads to your eligibility to sit for state and national licensing exams. It is the entry point to the profession. The Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a clinical doctoral degree offered to those who have earned a MATCM or equivalent and often are looking to add a focused specialty to his or her practice.
