The online Doctor of Acupuncture program bridges the gap between the master’s degree and the entry-level doctorate, strengthening the acupuncturist’s ability to be a successful part of our integrative healthcare system. The curriculum uses an approach that enriches the acupuncturists’ understanding of both biomedicine and Chinese medicine and increases their confidence as members of the integrative, multi-disciplinary team.
