About Us



    International Scientific Acupuncture and Meridian Symposium (iSAMS) is established to provide a platform for information exchange and discussion between scholars to enhance the high-quality of integrative and complementary medicine research and to form an international research network. It is held mostly in the school of medicine or the health science related school in the University each year to encourage students and new investigators in the field. To keep iSAMS as a premium symposium academically and clinically, all the speakers are invited by the organizing committee under the certain standard. iSAMS will be a dynamic meeting that focuses on bringing the most up-to-date information and experience of researchers together and practitioners in the field of integrative medicine as well as the public.


    The University of Otago

    The University of Otago, founded in 1869 by an ordinance of the Otago Provincial Council, is New Zealand’s oldest university. The new University was given 100,000 acres of pastoral land as an endowment and authorized to grant degrees in Arts, Medicine, Law and Music.

    Along with the main campus in Dunedin, the University of Otago has Health Sciences campuses in Christchurch (University of Otago, Christchurch), Wellington (University of Otago, Wellington) (established in 1972 and 1977 respectively), and an information and teaching centre in central Auckland (1996).



    Korean Pharmacopuncture Institute (KPI) was chartered in 1991 to govern the safety of pharmacopuncture and to modernize the clinical usage of herbal acupuncture.

    Furthermore, our research center with clean room was established for safe production of the herbal extracts and to develop wide variety of herbal medicine. KPI is on the leading edge of Korean medicine and we are proud of our efforts in modernization of Korean medicine.
