As of fall 2018, the NUNM College of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) had a total of 151 students with 60 enrolled in the DSOM program and 91 enrolled in the MSOM program. Of these 151 CCM students, 67 were also enrolled concurrently in another graduate program at NUNM.

Retention and Graduation Rates
The table below represents attrition and graduation rates from CCM programs. It’s important to note that the below statistics do not represent institutional attrition. NUNM allows students to take two graduate degrees concurrently and to add or drop new programs at any point during their academic careers. Consequently, many students initially enroll in two programs and later decide to leave one program to more fully focus on the other. Institutional attrition (i.e., students who leave NUNM) continues to remain low at less than 7% of the total student population annually.

Each year NUNM graduates are contacted and asked to share wage data and employment outcomes. Graduates “working in their field” are using skills and credentials directly attributable to their NUNM education and are seeking to be paid for the work. Individuals who have opened or joined a clinic are included in this definition.
