A master’s degree is a graduate level degree that is obtained after completing a bachelor’s program. This degree is usually obtained to advance in a career or qualify for more advanced positions within a career.

What is a Master in Acupuncture? This program focuses on helping students to qualify for state licensing as acupuncturists. The program usually covers advanced topics and provides practical work experience. Students learn how to safely care for patients while exhibiting proficiency in traditional Chinese medicine techniques, patient assessment, treatment plan creation, acupuncture techniques and professionalism. Students may learn about advanced acupuncture skills, tui na, Chinese herbs and how to integrate Western and Eastern medical practices. Skills are created so that a graduate is ready to work directly with patients as a caregiver after completion of the program.

The benefits of completing this program are that students may be able to sit for the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine board exam, which enables them to become licensed in most states. They are then able to practice as licensed acupuncturists.

Costs for the program vary from state to state and school to school. This may be related to varying course lengths. Generally, though, it takes about two to three years to complete the program.

Completing this program can allow a person to serve his or her community with Western medicine techniques. Career opportunities can be found in private practice or in a group or clinic environment where a graduate is able to help others through administering acupuncture treatments. A graduate may also work in research or writing about Chinese medicine to help advance the field.

Eastern medicine, especially acupuncture, is seeing a growth in popularity, which is why getting a Master in Acupuncture degree can well-worth considering. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
