XingHuo College of Oriental Medicine (XHCOM) places special emphasis on Chinese Herbology (herbal medicine) consistent with the classical Chinese treatment protocols. The program expands upon this traditional approach to treatment to better prepare students to pass the National Commission on Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) National Certification examination in Chinese Herbology required for licensure and practice. Our graduates are exceptionally well prepared for the NCCAOM ( National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine ) examination in acupuncture, a nationally recognized certification, and consistently maintain an above-average pass-rate.

Asia recognizes the United States as a primary source of Oriental Medicine theory and practice.

The Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is designed to meet the educational requirements of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) examinations in acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. The NCCAOM examination process is a mandatory component in achieving Diplomat of the NCCAOM status. Ninety percent of the 37 jurisdictions that regulate the practice of acupuncture have adopted the NCCAOM acupuncture examination as part of the fundamental process for licensing acupuncturists. The certificate awarded by the NCCAOM is not a license to practice acupuncture. Individual states perform this function and should be contacted directly for further information. The State of Arizona began to license acupuncturists in May 1998. Licensure requires a resident course of at least three years of study and successful completion of the NCCAOM National Board Examination in Acupuncture or equivalent as defined by the Board.
