Five Branches Students Visit Korean Oriental Medicine Hospital

Eleven students of the Five Branches University Korean Master’s Degree program traveled to Korea in December 2011 to train at the hospital of Dae Jen Oriental Medicine University as part of a new Clinical Externship offered by Five Branches.
