Dr. Ilana Newman attended medical school at the University of Arizona, followed by a residency in family medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York and a fellowship in adolescent medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. While in residency, Dr. Newman became frustrated with the limited treatment options she had for patients with back pain, which led her to complete the acupuncture program for physicians at UCLA. She also completed the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) program’s ear acupuncture training at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. While in New York, Dr. Newman also worked as a medical news reporter on the Oxygen Network and on daily video online medical news reports.

After moving to South Florida, Dr. Newman took the basic and advanced acupuncture courses for physicians at the University of Miami. Several years later, she completed a fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine at the University of Miami. Today, she conducts inpatient palliative medicine consultations at the Memorial Hospital System in Broward County, and teaches workshops on Korean Hand Therapy for self-treatment for pain.
