The Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM) is a comprehensive graduate program designed to lead students to the level of knowledge and clinical proficiency necessary to become a successful independent health-care provider—whether as an individual practitioner or as part of an integrative medicine team. The MSTCM program emphasizes hands-on clinical training with theoretical study, creating a strong foundation for a career as an acupuncturist.
The Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM) builds upon our MSTCM curriculum with an additional focus on integrative and collaborative health care, research literacy, and evidence-informed practices. At a time when acupuncture is an increasingly valued treatment in mainstream care for patient wellness, it is important for acupuncturists to be equipped with the knowledge, communication, and research skills to effectively work with Western medical doctors, physical therapists, and other health-care professionals
