Daoist Traditions’ Oriental Medicine program was initially accredited in August 2008 by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), the U.S. Department of Education recognized accrediting agency for the field of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Daoist Traditions was approved through the ACAOM Substantive Change Policy to offer the Certificate of Chinese Herbal Medicine program in 2014. This substantive change approval authorizes the institution to offer the program as an AOM Related Program, however the program is neither accredited nor in candidacy status with the ACAOM. ACAOM does not accredit herbal medicine certificate programs. The Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) has granted permission to begin enrolling students in the PD program.
