Dr. Fujio McPherson, LTC (ret). I started my career as a young combat medic providing direct care to solider's. Wanting to expand my role and continue my military career as an officer, I completed my BSN at the University of Pennsylvania and enjoyed an extended career providing patient care and educating soldiers in emergency medicine. However, after several years I wanted to take on the challenge of medical management and treatment and completed my MSN at the University of South Carolina and began a third career as a Nurse Practitioner.

Although the practice of medicine provided me the ability to diagnose and treat diseases, my nursing orientation gave me a keen awareness that treatment alone does not guarantee that the patient heals internally or returns to a state of health. This ultimately lead me to look into other forms of medicine. In addition to completing a certification program in Ayurvedic Medicine, I eventually completed a Masters degree in Acupuncture from Bastyr University and a Doctoral degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. As a result of merging these medical practices that combine treatment with healing, I find that not only is my personal satisfaction in clinical practice higher but most important that a majority of my patients heal, making them less dependent on treatment. This is why AIM institute was developed and hopefully the same outcomes will be achieved by graduates who have a desire to combine their knowledge of medicine with the tenants of healing found in Chinese Medicine and Nursing.
