Are you looking for a way to expand your existing acupuncture or Oriental medicine career into new areas? Getting a Master’s degree in acupuncture might be the right decision for you. Even if you have received training in acupuncture and are working in the industry, you can benefit from getting your Master’s degree from a leading school such as the American College of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. This can be a springboard for you to move into a new career path.

Master’s degrees from accredited acupuncture schools such as ACAOM do more than provide you with enhanced skills. They are also a valuable tool in branching out and expanding your client base. With a Master’s degree from ACAOM, you are qualified to sit for the Texas State Board of Acupuncture Exam, can be approved by the California Acupuncture Board, and can take license exams in other states such as California.

But a postgraduate degree from ACAOM does more than get you ready for license exams. You’ll also be better prepared for expanding the scope of your medical practice. A Master’s degree means that you’ll have a better chance of partnering with traditional medical clinics or hospitals to provide services to their patients. A Master’s in integrative medicine can give practitioners a well-rounded overview of Oriental and Western medical techniques, which is a major benefit when working within a traditional medical setting.

Further experience is gained by working at ACAOM’s clinics, including the acupuncture treatments provided in conjunction with Houston Methodist Hospital. It all adds up to ending your time at ACAOM with the skills and experience needed to expand your career horizons.

The American College of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine is dedicated to teaching practitioners the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine combined with techniques used in modern Western medicine.
