President’s Welcome

Dr. Fu DiDear Prospective Student,

We offer our warmest congratulations to you as you embark on the path toward becoming a future Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine practitioner. Since our establishment in 1994, the
Atlantic Institute of Medicine (ATOM) has served as a beacon of excellence in natural medicine education, fostering individuals to develop into caring and skilled healthcare providers. We take pride in our exceptional curricula, robust clinical training, and a strong tradition of providing outstanding patient care.

At ATOM, you will encounter a faculty of exceptional and seasoned professionals who not only serve as instructors but also serve as inspiring role models. They have meticulously designed a comprehensive and intellectually engaging program of study in acupuncture and herbal medicine. Together, we are dedicated to preparing the next generation of practitioners with profound knowledge and the invaluable ability to adapt to an ever-changing world.

As we continue to expand, ATOM has earned a reputation as an institution that attracts academically accomplished students. Our students demonstrate the potential to embody essential characteristics, including empathy and self-assurance, all while maintaining an attitude of utmost professionalism. By the time they graduate, these attributes are not merely skills they possess but qualities they exude. This transformation is the result of our faculty’s unwavering commitment to upholding noble traits and the administration's resolute dedication to guiding and nurturing our students.

ATOM is more than a school; it’s a community that fosters positivity. When Dr. Johanna Yen, our founding president, approached me 30 years ago, she said, “We are not just staff members of the institute; we are here because we share a passion for what we do." This passion, nurtured over time, has not only fueled ATOM’s growth but has consistently produced high- caliber Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine practitioners. Our alumni are recognized for not only being compassionate advocates for their patients but also empathetic healers, no matter where  their practice may take them.

Welcome to the ATOM community, where you will discover a supportive environment for your aspirations and a dedication to your success. We eagerly anticipate assisting you in embarking on this unforgettable journey.
