Pacific College of Health and Science’s Master of Acupuncture, Master of Oriental Medicine, professional doctorate, and certificate in Chinese herbal medicine programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). Institution/program accreditation locations, history, notes, and dates of review may be viewed at: http://acaom.org/directory-menu/directory/. ACAOM is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the specialized accreditation agency for institutions/programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners. ACAOM is located at 8941 Aztec Drive, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55347; phone 952/212-2434; fax 952/657-7068; www.acaom.org

The accreditation status of the professional doctorate curricula applies to both the Doctor of Acupuncture and the Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. This status also applies to Pacific’s professional doctorate completion track. Pacific advertises the degree completion opportunity as the “transitional doctorate” program in order to distinguish that pathway from the entry-level pathway. However, this professional doctorate completion track for graduates of ACAOM-accredited/pre-accredited master’s-level programs is considered by ACAOM as a component of the overall professional doctorate.
