Programmatic Accreditation

Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM)
The master’s degree programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine at each campus and the post-graduate doctoral degree at the San Diego campus are programmatically accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), which is the recognized accrediting agency for programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners. ACAOM is located at 8941 Aztec Drive, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55347; phone 952-212-2434; fax 301-313-0912.

Disclaimer

The DACM and DAc programs are not accredited or pre-accredited (candidacy) by ACAOM. Graduates of these programs are not considered to have graduated from an ACAOM accredited or candidate program and may not rely on ACAOM accreditation or candidacy for professional licensure or other purposes. Graduates of the DACM concurrently earn the MSTOM degree, ensuring eligibility for exams administered by agencies that do not yet recognize the DACM. This is simply an issue of educational programs progressing, at times, faster than regulators, and should be resolved shortly.

These programs are eligible for ACAOM accreditation and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is currently in the process of seeking ACAOM candidacy/accreditation for these programs. However, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine can provide no assurance that candidacy or accreditation will be granted by ACAOM.
