Julie McCormick, the newest Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine(ABORM)

In the United States, it is estimated that approximately 3 million couples are unable to conceive after one year of trying.  More couples are turning to acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine instead of, or in addition to, Western Infertility treatments.  Much research has been done demonstrating the effectiveness of Chinese medicine with many aspects of infertility, such as ovulation difficulties, male factor, and unexplained infertility.

We are pleased to announce that Julie has become a Board Certified Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).   Formed by leaders in the field of Oriental reproductive medicine, they aim to raise the standard of care in this field.  The ABORM emphasizes integrated treatment methods, evidence-based medicine, and standardization in the field of fertility treatment within Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.

To become an ABORM Fellow candidates must pass a rigorous examination that measures competency in both Western and Chinese reproductive medicine.  By voluntarily acquiring the additional education and training required to become certified in this specialty, Julie hopes to demonstrate a commitment to the treatment of fertility within Chinese Medicine, and more importantly, to her patients.   Congratulations Julie!
