Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine College

Thank you for your interest in Daoist Traditions. Inspired by the teachings of Jeffrey Yuen, 88th generation Daoist priest, we are dedicated to advancing knowledge in the field of Chinese medicine.

Our student body consists of a mix of students who have recently completed their undergraduate studies as well as professionals seeking new careers. Our MAOM and Professional Doctorate programs offer extensive training in acupuncture and herbal medicine. Our Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine program offers acupuncture practitioners the opportunity to become NCCAOM certified in Chinese Herbology and enhance their practices with the use of herbal medicine. We accept a small number of non-degree seeking students who are interested in studying Chinese medicine for their own personal enrichment.

Licensure in most states requires the successful passing of the NCCAOM exams. Our graduates have earned above average passing rates on these exams since the inception of the college. The depth of our programs is intended to ensure that graduates have the experience necessary to succeed.

Throughout its long history, Chinese medicine has been a dynamic and evolving medical art and science. As it is quickly becoming mainstream medicine, it is also one the fastest growing professions in the United States. We invite you to begin your journey toward becoming a part of this ancient tradition.
