School of Acupuncture
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?
AIAM’s Acupuncture Program is a graduate level program awarding a Master Degree in Acupuncture with advanced academic demands within the full-time curriculum.
The program is designed to graduate primary healthcare practitioners based on Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts that employ Acupuncture diagnosis and treatment, as well as adjunctive therapies and diagnostic techniques for the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health and the prevention of disease.
Our program is one of only a handful of programs available in the Midwest, and one of the most respected programs in the country. We give students the skills to succeed and take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to real situations through our on-site clinic.
Study Abroad! AIAM acupuncture students have the opportunity to study abroad in China in conjunction with one of China’s best Chinese Medicine Hospitals. This tour can be counted toward fulfilling a student’s clinical hour requirements and is the perfect chance for acupuncture students to work alongside experts in the field of Chinese Medicine.
