School of Classical Chinese Medicine

Laurie Regan, PhD, ND – Dean of Classical Chinese Medicine

Offering two programs rooted in the ancient traditions of China

NCNM 's School of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) offers two programs tailored to meet the needs of students seeking classical training in Chinese medicine. Both emphasize a “scholar–practitioner” educational style designed to achieve our mission of “transmitting the art, science, and spirit of Chinese medicine to cultivate practitioners rooted in the ancient tradition of the medical scholar.”

Our CCM community believes that the exploration and embodiment of the original tenets and practices of this medicine are essential if we are to bring its true power to today’s patients.

Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM)

The MSOM program is the most comprehensive training in classical Chinese medicine offered in the US. In this four–year, 3,474 hour/226 credit program, students are immersed in the classical foundations of the medicine, receive a holistic education in Western medical sciences, and are trained in the clinical application of the major modalities of Chinese medicine.

Master of Acupuncture (MAc)

The MAc program is not admitting new students for the 2014-2015 academic year

The Master of Acupuncture is a three–year, 2,394 hour/155.25 credit program designed for students having a special affinity for classical acupuncture and moxibustion, and wanting a more streamlined graduate experience. The foundation of the MAc program is similar to that of the MSOM program, with fewer hours of theory and without herbal instruction. An increased emphasis is placed on the refinement of palpation and perception skills used in acupuncture diagnosis and treatment.
