Professional Doctorate Program
Daoist Traditions is excited to announce that the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) has granted permission for us to begin the process of offering a Professional Doctorate (PD) program. Daoist Traditions is one of only nine colleges currently granted permission to offer an entry-level professional doctorate program. We are proud to be at the forefront of the profession, able to offer our students access to the new terminal degree opportunity.
Daoist Traditions Professional Doctorate will expand on our Master’s program to include emphasis on:
- Patient-centered care as part of an interdisciplinary team of practitioners;
- Integration of Chinese medicine and biomedical research, theory, and
evidence-informed practice into patient care; and,
- Collaborative Care internship in a clinical setting.
Coursework for the Professional Doctorate degree will begin in October 2017.
Some courses in the PD program are offered in a hybrid format – mixing face-to-face classroom instruction with online activities and outside resources to reinforce and complement what is learned in class. Hybrid courses offer more convenience and flexibility to fit into students’ busy schedules. We offer hybrid courses in asynchronous and synchronous formats.
