Top 10 Master Degrees in Complimentary Medicine 2019/2020

When the knowledge gained through a bachelor’s program is not enough, the next step can be for someone to enroll in a master’s degree program. A master’s degree is a graduate-level accomplishment that certifies a high level of expertise in the subject studied.

What is a Master in Complementary Medicine? Complementary medicine includes any number of alternative medicinal practices that can work in combination with or apart from traditional medical techniques. One example of a degree program in complementary medicine is a Master of Acupuncture. For this degree, students become familiar with the flow of chi throughout the body and the locations of the meridian points used in acupuncture. A knowledge of herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine is also a key part of the program.

Those with a Master in Complementary Medicine learn to assess patients properly and know when to refer them to other medical professionals. They may be able to administer acupuncture treatments safely and effectively. Graduates can have the management skills necessary to open a private practice of their own.

Master’s degree programs in complementary medicine have a range of costs, and these are affected by things such as tuition and housing, as well as where the school is located. A fiscally sound decision may require some degree of researching the different institutions.

Integrative medicine spans over a broad range, and any type of degree in complementary medicine could lead to filling a specific niche. Those trained in acupuncture, for instance, can find a job at a health clinic or begin their own practice. There are also jobs in education for those with a master’s degree. Institutions that teach these degrees also need administrators who have experience and who can consult with the instructors.

Taking online classes to fulfill credits towards a Master in Complementary Medicine is a good way to accommodate a busy schedule. Plus, students can enroll in classes from more distant schools. To get started, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
