New England School of Acupuncture is the first Chinese Medicine School in the United States. From the aspects of school history, status of students and situation of teachers, curriculum design, clinical practice and scientific research, this present article makes a simple introduction for this school, and briefly compares the Chinese Medicine education between China and west. Different from China, the American education is more lively and vivid, open and flexible, but lacks enough attention on the study of classic and clinical practice. In a word, China and the West could learn from each other and make the best of the both worlds.
