Qianzhi “Jamie” Wu first learned acupuncture and Chinese medicine while apprenticing with a so-called “barefoot doctor” in the Chinese countryside near his hometown. His formal studies began in 1978 at Luzhou Medical College, after which he entered the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In Chengdu, he studied most notably with Li Ke-guan, whose father was the founder of the University in early 1930s. Wu’s first book, Qu Wei Zhong Yi, was published prior to his graduation, and in 1993 he became one of the youngest professors ever employed by the university. By 1993, Prof. Wu had published 5 other books as well as dozens of academic papers. After visiting Germany and Austria in 1994 and 1995, Prof. Wu took a teaching position at the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin, Texas, where he now serves as Vice President. He is a former Commissioner for the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), chairman of the Chinese Herbal Test Development Committee of NCCAOM, and currently acts as a site visitor for the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Recently prof. Wu published a pediatric textbook named as TCM Case Studies: Pediatrics at the People’s Medical Publishing House in Beijing.
