South Baylo University has one of the best AOM programs in the country, and being granted this scholarship will not only allow me to focus on my academics but spend my time becoming more involved with research opportunities offered at this institution. I am looking for an environment that allows me to be challenged, learn and grow. I’d love to be a part of a program like yours someday, and I think that this opportunity would be great to start.

Melisa, Gokkes-Vining

I have researched your Master’s Degree program and visited the admission office to get a feel for your school. When I saw the flame of 홍익인간 in front of the admission office, I felt this school is the right one for me. My mentor always says that we are here in this lifetime for the 홍익인간. He says that 홍익인간 is love, faith, and gratitude. Hongik is a sense of responsibility, patience, and forgiveness. Hongik is a life of health, happiness, and peace.

Etsuko Ozaki Moromi

I am confident that I can be equipped to become a reliable practitioner of acupuncture and oriental medicine at South Baylo University. As I gain a deeper understanding and learn useful skills throughout the Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program, I will continue to reflect on these motivations to keep chasing my dream.

Suhhyun Stella Kim

I would like to highly praise and give credit to Dr. Tae and to the School of Oriental Medicine at South Baylo University for their knowledge, patience, and ability to help me and tremendously improve my condition. My quality of life and well-being is accredited to Dr. Tae and his amazing efforts and treatment methods.

Dr. Byung C Kim, D.D.S.

I came last week with a major migraine headache, tendonitis, and insomnia. I felt relief from migraine headaches on the first sessions. I had been sleeping 2 to 4 hours for the past couple of weeks. The day I got my first session I was able to sleep 9 hours straight without waking up. I’m very happy with your services and professional friendly staff.
