Adding Chinese herbal medicine to an acupuncture practice is a great way to strengthen your clinic and help your patients. The Won Institute’s Chinese Herbal Medicine Certificate program provides a convenient weekend schedule offering the flexibility that working professionals need to attend school while working full-time.

In our two year program, students learn the use of over 400 herbs and learn to prepare 340 common herbal formulas in our on-site herbal dispensary. Our program presents a variety of topics around the application of herbology including Shang Han Lun, Wen Bing masters theory, and advanced treatment topics for gynecology, neurology, and oncology. Small class sizes create a personalized learning environment which regularly features renowned guest lecturers such as Ann Jeffries and Marnae Ergil.

During the final four terms of the program students spend two days per month in our Herbal Medicine Clinic and create formulas and decoctions for patients in our on-site dispensary.

I have been going to Cara Frank for over 4 years and she has basically been my primary care doctor, keeping my health strong through huge life changes, curing my chronic sinus infections and allergies specifically, but really keeping my whole system in good shape. Cara is an expert in the field, an absolutely wonderful doctor, funny, down-to-earth, and caring friend to her patients. There is no woo-woo or weird stuff to worry about here. I HIGHLY recommend her practice (also Tansy Briggs who is excellent). My husband was a big skeptic, but after seeing my health flourish even during really stressful times, even he began to see Cara for accupuncture and herbs, and is equally impressed and grateful. I’ve been to both practices: one in center city, and the new one on Gray’s Ferry — both terrific!
