Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

We are the leading DAOM program in the US offering two clinical specialties and externships in world-renowned integrated medicine centers. In addition to developing new clinical skills and studying with nationally and internationally respected faculty, DAOM students have the opportunity to develop academic skills in preparation for research, teaching, and publishing scholarly work.

The DAOM program is designed for licensed acupuncturists looking to focus on integrative medicine, deepen their TCM knowledge and skills, and specialize in TCM Pain Management or TCM Women's Health. This clinically based, doctorate program is open to individuals who have completed a master's degree in Oriental Medicine or who have been practicing in the field for over ten years. The intensive module format both accommodates practitioners' lives and professional practices, as well as creates an environment in which students can immediately apply the knowledge and skills they learn in clinical practice.
