Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Schools

Since the formation of the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 1992, the number of acupuncture institutions in the United States has grown dramatically.

Listed below is the contact information for every ACAOM-accredited and candidate school in North America. If you would like to learn more about how schools are accredited and the role of ACAOM in the accreditation process, visit the Accreditation Commission's website at www.acaom.org.
