Dr. Qianzhi Wu began his acupuncture studies as the apprentice of a veteran “barefoot doctor” in China, before going on to complete a master’s degree at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), one of the three oldest and most prestigious TCM universities in China. Following the completion of his degree, and spanning a ten- year period, he taught acupuncture, Chinese bodywork, foundations of Chinese medicine, and Chinese medical qigong as an associate professor at the Chengdu University of TCM. Noted for the quality of his teaching, Dr. Wu received a provincial award in 1992 as an excellent instructor during his tenure at Chengdu University, and also served as a chief acupuncturist at Chengdu University’s teaching hospital. From 1987 to 1992, he was a major contributor to the Depository of Questions used by the Sichuan Province’s equivalent of the U.S. National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

In 1994, the China Ministry of Education advocated the “211 Project,” a project for national higher education reform. As chief contributor and leader for the design of the “211 Project” for Chengdu University of TCM, Dr. Wu was involved in redesigning TCM programs and curricula for the bachelor, master, and doctoral levels and was highly honored by the academic committee of the university. Dr. Wu has published eight Oriental medicine books (four of them as the primary author) and many papers in China, Germany, and the United States. Dr. Wu is a past commissioner of the NCCAOM, and served as the chairman of the Chinese Herbology and Asian Bodywork Examination Development Committees of the NCCAOM. In addition to leading the faculty, Dr. Wu also teaches foundational theory and advanced acupuncture and herbal courses. He has been an AOMA faculty member since 1996.
