On top of my private practice in Richmond, BC, I supervise senior student clinicians at the Boucher Naturopathic Medical Clinic, a teaching clinic where 4th year Naturopathic Medical Interns gain clinical experience seeing patients under a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. 

This is an option for those who are seeking more affordable care while giving opportunities for interns to utilize what they have learned in their intensive studies. 

Meet the interns that are supervised by Dr. Fung below!
You can make an appointment at the Boucher Naturopathic Medical Clinic at (604) 706-1209 or visit https://www.boucherclinic.org

Meet The Team on Wednesdays 5-8pm

ELIZABETH CHI

Secondary Intern

Hello! May name is Elizabeth Chi. As a third-year naturopathic medical student at CCNM, I would like to help patients on their journey towards self-healing and self-awareness. I want to inspire them to take charge of their own health and give them tools to be better focused on their goals. Since I grew up in a mandarin-speaking household, I want to bring more awareness of Naturopathic Medicine to the Chinese community!  I am passionate about chronic conditions, woman’s health & cosmetics, and digestive disturbances. I am currently in the process of getting an acupuncturist license and I love using botanicals, manual therapies, massage therapy, and physical medicine!
