Students may apply for admission at any time of the year, and may begin their studies at the beginning of any trimester. The following documents must be submitted for application:
Doctoral applicants must hold a Master’s degree, or equivalent, in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from an ACAOM-accredited institution, or an ACAOM-candidate institution. This ensures a minimum standard of academic achievement and clinical background in the field of TCM. Prospective students must demonstrate a cumulative grade point average of no less than 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Applicants who have a GPA below 3.0, or show weak areas in their transcripts, will be evaluated carefully. Any other factors which show strong motivation, such as a successful practice or participation in professional organizations will be taken into consideration by the Admissions Committee.
In addition to the documents required for admission, you will have an interview with the Admissions Director.
