Doctor of Acupuncture (DAc.) and Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM) Programs

The purpose of VUIM’s First Profes­sional Doctorate in Acupun­cture program — titled Doctor of Acupun­cture (DAc.) — and First Profes­sional Doctorate in Oriental Medicine program — titled Doctor of Oriental Medicine — is to foster compe­tent Oriental medicine practi­tioners through advanced studies. To achieve this purpose, VUIM sets forth the following goals for its Doctor of Acupun­cture (DAc.) and Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM) Programs.

  2. Submission of Official trans­cripts from your Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. Trans­cripts must be received in a sealed envelope or directly from the insti­tu­tion in a secure digital format. Students will be required to submit official trans­cripts from all other insti­tu­tions from which academic credit was earned if the student intends to request transfer of credit.

Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) Program

The purpose of the Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine is to train future practi­tioners of acupun­cture and Oriental Medicine through empowering them through practice and know­ledge in functioning as primary, comple­mentary, inde­pendent, or inte­gra­tive health­care providers. The MSOM program enables our graduates to sit for the National Acupun­cture and Oriental Medicine licensing exam (NCCAOM) as well as apply the principles of Oriental Medicine to diagnostics, treat­ment, and prognosis of patients while inte­grating into the modern health­care system.

Students are provided a solid foun­dation in the principles of Acupun­cture as well as Western Allopathic Medicine. The Acupun­cture program includes an extensive study of diagnostics, methods of treat­ment, acupun­cture, and ethical manage­ment. The program is speci­fi­cally designed to prepare students to sit for the NCCAOM licen­sure exa­mi­nation in Acupun­cture Certi­fi­cation and provide the neces­sary skills to practice safely and skill­fully.
