Message from President Lisa Lin

School President Lisa LinGreetings,

In January of 2013, Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine announced the change of its name to Texas Health and Science University. Our name change represented another giant step to advance the school’s global efforts and strategic initiatives and position the new university to educate a new generation of leaders in the professions of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and Business.

For over 25 years, our school has been on the forefront of various efforts to establish high standards for the practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Texas and throughout the United States. I am proud to have been a leader in the successful efforts to pass acupuncture legislation in the State of Texas, and to have served as the first Chair of the Education Committee of the Texas State Board of Acupuncture Examiners, appointed to the committee by then-governor Ann Richards, in 1993. I have even been called a pioneer!

Texas Health and Science University is proud to be on the forefront today of legislative efforts to continue to advance the profession of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the State of Texas. The new university is committed to confronting the academic challenges and addressing the urgent needs of the profession of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the 21st century. Thus, our mission today is based on the disciplines of acupuncture and business, the essential twin pillars of healthcare management for the 21st century global community.

A new generation of pioneers is needed for the 21st century. The administration, faculty, and student body of Texas Health and Science University cordially invite YOU to become a part of our university family.

Come and join us as pioneers in the 21st century global community!
