Accreditation and State Licensing
The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, its masters-level program in Oriental Medicine (MSOM), and its masters-level program in acupuncture (MLA) are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). Accreditation status and notes may be viewed on the ACAOM Directory. ACAOM is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the specialized accreditation agency for institutions/programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners. ACAOM is located at 8941 Aztec Drive, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55347; phone 952/212-2434; fax 952/657-7068; www.acaom.org
The advanced practice doctoral program is eligible for ACAOM accreditation, and Midwest College of Oriental Medicine is currently in the process of seeking ACAOM pre-accreditation/accreditation for the program. However, Midwest College of Oriental Medicine can provide no assurance that pre-accreditation or accreditation will be granted by ACAOM.
The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine’s advanced practice doctoral (DAOM) program, approved to begin enrolling students, is not yet accredited or pre-accredited by ACAOM. Graduates of this program are not considered to have graduated from an ACAOM-accredited or pre-accredited program and may not rely on ACAOM accreditation or pre-accreditation for professional licensure or other purposes.
The school and its programs are approved by the State of Wisconsin Educational Approval Board and the State of Illinois Board of Higher Education. Documentation and information relating to the accreditation, approval, and licensing of the school or its programs are available in Racine during business hours or call 800.593.2320.
