Acupuncture Schools

The number of acupuncture schools in the United States has continued to grow since the creation of the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) in 1982. At present, approximately 50 schools are either accredited by ACAOM, or are candidates for accreditation, providing high-quality education in acupuncture and Oriental medicine to thousands of students each year.

Listed below are links to every ACAOM-accredited and candidate acupuncture program in North America. By clicking on a link, you'll not only be able to contact a school; you'll also learn about each school's mission and educational objectives; read a brief history of the institution; and find more information on the school's degree programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine.
