San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco has just received full accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) for its Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) program. ACTCM is now the first and only school in Northern California able to offer such an accredited program.
“Having received full accreditation from the Commission is reflective of the integrity and strength of the ACTCM doctoral program,” said Director of the Doctoral Program and Research Dr. Carla J. Wilson, DAOM, MA, L.Ac. “We are proud of our success and know that this step will enable practitioners in the field of AOM to engage in doctoral studies that will open doors for the greater profession.”
ACAOM is the national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for the accreditation and pre-accreditation ("Candidacy") throughout the United States of first-professional master's degree and professional master's-level certificate and diploma programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine and professional post-graduate doctoral programs in acupuncture and Oriental medicine.
The accreditation furthers ACTCM’s commitment to providing practitioners in the field of acupuncture and Oriental medicine a doctoral degree that can open up ground breaking opportunities to work in integrated health care environments. Anyone who has previously received the degree may now indicate that they graduated from an accredited program.
TCM restores internal balance and health, and effectively treats a wide range of illnesses and chronic pain. Increasing numbers of people are turning to acupuncture to cure insomnia, back pain and thoracic pain, neurological disorders, anxiety, fertility issues, allergy relief, weight loss, addiction and substance use, sports performance enhancement, immune support, and general health maintenance.
About the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM)
The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) has been at the forefront of educating students in Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Bay Area since its inception in 1980. The college offers two degree programs—the Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM) and the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). Both programs provide exceptional professional education.
Those who receive treatment are informed that sterile, disposable needles will be used. Because the needles are thin, solid and pliable, most people feel little to no discomfort. Patients typically feel energized and relaxed, and are given a recommended course of treatment and self-care based on a specific TCM diagnosis.
