What do FCIM Students say?
“Being the owner of three successful clinics in the field of acupuncture, I own my gratitude to FCIM. The learning in FCIM established my solid foundation in my clinic practice. The updated school environment has significantly improved since my days as a student in FCIM. However, the warm and caring learning environment to nurture the professional and personal growth of Oriental medicine education has continued with a more organizational touch. I am thankful and proud to be among the graduates. Thanks, FCIM. ”

“Today is a day of great sadness, for we must leave you all behind. Since coming here you have taught, guided, and nurtured us like a parent would a child. Eagerly and loving imparting your knowledge and wisdom upon us. Instilling us with integrity and compassion, so we might better serve those who seek our help.
Therefore as we leave here today you can be certain that we will always cherish the gifts you have given us, and your spirits will always be in our heart.
Most of all we want you to know what an honor it is to call you teachers.”

“I have found all my teachers to be genuinely interested in teaching and concerned about their students’ progress. This is especially true of our clinic. The school’s clinic, class instruction, and library offer opportunities that go far beyond the syllabus. ”

“The Florida College of Integrative Medicine is a complete school, satisfying my needs and requirements of an education in Traditional Medicine, both personally and professionally, so that I can go forth, pass the required exam and practice the medicine.”
Ruth A Elder, Class 11 (Graduated in 2000)
“The professor are superb, this includes the core faculty as well as the community physicians. The knowledge base is outstanding, and the ability to communicate the materials and respond to questions is excellent. The professors not only make the materials interesting but are able to motivate students and challenge each of us to perform to our individual capacities. ”
Virginia C Vary, Class 13 (Graduated in 2001)
“Originally from Taiwan as an international student, I’ve been practicing Oriental Medicine in Orlando for almost two years now. I love it so much. At my first job, as a research Biologist at Taiwan, I felt incomplete. I wanted something more. I began to search and found that Alternative medicine in the US had just started blooming, and Oriental Medicine was one of the huge branches of it. Oriental Medicine is being practiced by numerous people in America. I wanted to make myself able to help, to heal, to care. So I applied to the Florida College of Integrative Medicine.
The training at Florida College of Integrative Medicine came out marvelous. I adore all my teachers. They are well trained in both Chinese and Western Medicine and they do care about us a lot and are willing to help all the time. I’m really thankful for those who have given me a hand when I needed it. And I’m very proud of being a member of this family in Florida College of Integrative Medicine.”
Brenda M. Chen, Class 17 (Graduated in 2004)
“The exceptional curriculum, faculty and administration facilitated my growth as a human being and helped mold me into a caring, well-qualified, practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Words alone, cannot express the debt of gratitude that I feel.”
Todd Robocker, Class 20 (Graduated in 2005)
“I wish to thank the admission officer and the administrative staff for the extended warmth, genuine caring that both my wife and I experienced while on FCIM Campus. Literally, the experience was inspirational and uplifting. My personal assessment of interfacing with the Admission Officer, Academic Dean, staff members, and students exemplified what I considered practicing love which left me leaving your campus with the feeling of being a valuable human being rather than just another student wishing to master the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I was particularly impressed with Dr. Chai. She exhibited and conveyed a deep sense of spirituality so often missing in colleges. She left me with a deep memory of being capable of achieving my deepest desire to become a healer using this ancient and powerful art form of healing. ”
