What acupuncture school(s) provides the best/most thorough education?

I’m in the process of applying to acupuncture schools, and am getting a little spun. I’m searching for an accredited school with strong curriculum that is rooted in traditional chinese medicine (including herbs, tui na, qigong, etc.), and that is taught by qualified faculty (who graduated from schools other than the one at which they’re currently teaching). I’m open to schools anywhere in the U.S. Any feedback (positive or negative) about any school would be greatly appreciated.


  1. http://www.acupuncturecollege.edu
    Southwest Acupuncture College
    they have campuses in albuquerque, NM, Santa Fe, NM, and Boulder, CO. it’s reputation is that of being an “ivy league” school of TCM. request a catalog – just their catalog is worth the effort it takes to get one. I’ve been accepted and will start classes in August. I can’t wait

  2. Hi nd16129, the best Acupuncture schools that are recommended are those that are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture, and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). Lists of these schools can also be found online – get search. You can search with your Web browser for accredited acupuncture schools and you should be led to this site. The ACAOM will be able to help you if you have any questions about the practice of acupuncture as a career.
