Home / Events / Doctorate Program: February 14th-17th, 2020 & 16–CEU *NCCAOM Approved* Seminar for Acupuncture Professionals: Integrative Gynecology ~ Traditional Chinese Medical Approach for Treating Infertility


Infertility treatment has seen remarkable development in the last few decades in both traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine. Refinement in understanding of the physiology and pathology of the female reproductive system continues to expand treatment options in both systems of medicine. Familiarity with clinical and theoretical advances in the field of female infertility is a gateway for acupuncturists to practice a truly integrative form of Chinese medicine. Our guest speaker for this seminar, Dr. Xiaoxiong Shen, stands on the cutting edge of this ever-evolving specialization. His presentation will enhance TCM practitioners’ ability to successfully differentiate and treat infertility patients in their clinic.  

This 16-hour seminar represents a stand-alone portion of AAAOM’s entire DAOM program. 

Dr. Xiaoxiong Shen, TCMD (China), Ph.D. (Japan) is one of the most highly-educated professionals in the field of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. After earning his Bachelor’s degree in TCM in 1982, he continued his education at Nanjing University of TCM, China, where he received his Master’s degree in TCM in 1987. Subsequently, he worked in Nanjing University Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology as a clinician, instructor, and researcher.
