NUNM’s Doctor of Science in Oriental Medicine (DSOM) degree is a life-changing journey on the path of the acupuncture and Chinese medicine scholar-practitioner—one that helps our students cultivate the capacity to access the profound healing knowledge and ancient wisdom found in the classical medical texts.

The DSOM is a four-year program that also incorporates the Master of Science of Oriental Medicine (MSOM) program. Immersion within the ancient texts helps our students develop the required competencies to integrate classical wisdom, skills and values into today’s healthcare system through effective communication and collaboration—assuring enhanced clinical outcomes.

The College of Classical Chinese Medicine emphasizes education through a scholar-mentor approach and clinical practice designed to transmit the art, science and spirit of Chinese medicine. Our programs deliver the most comprehensive training in classical Chinese medicine offered within the U.S.

As a DSOM graduate, you’ll also receive an MSOM degree, which is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and qualifies you to apply for licensure, and to take all of the AOM examinations administered by NCCAOM—used in most states as the basis for licensure. The DSOM program is eligible for ACAOM accreditation and NUNM is currently in the process of seeking ACAOM candidacy/accreditation.

NUNM’s College of Classical Chinese Medicine believes that the brilliance of biomedicine is most powerfully applied within the context of whole-systems science, and that Chinese medicine can only truly flourish when understood and applied according to its own precepts and tenets. This approach is in conscious contrast to the modern trend of interpreting Chinese medicine from the biomedical perspective.

Student Experience

“Chinese medicine is the medicine of the heart,” Michelle Yan, DSOM (’18), gets into the roots of NUNM’s classical Chinese medicine program.

Faculty Highlight

Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc

Dr. Fruehauf is the founding professor of the Classical Chinese Medicine program, and has been researching Eastern Asian civilizations and Chinese medicine for over 30 years.

“NUNM gave me the opportunity to design a Classical Chinese Medicine program when there were no such programs in the U.S. I especially value the high quality of our students and faculty. Our classical orientation requires that we look for faculty with a high level of training as well as knowledge of the language, culture and history of China. Teaching medicine from a profound place like this makes the learning process more exciting and, practically speaking, produces better clinical results. Chinese medicine, after more than four decades of development in the West, is still a pioneering profession. Much foundational work remains to be done—almost any topic is a worthwhile research subject. I feel very privileged to be part of a profession that is so interesting, to share exciting information with students who are so enthusiastic, and see how it all benefits others in a very real sense.”

Dr. Heiner Fruehauf has taught at NUNM since 1992. Internationally renowned as a scholar and lecturer, he has published widely on both the theoretical and clinical aspects of Chinese medicine. In his private practice he focuses on the treatment and prevention of difficult and recalcitrant diseases. He holds a PhD in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from the University of Chicago.

                  • MSiMH: Professional Experience

                    Tell us about your prior professional experience with mental health. Describe any relevant work experience, trainings, licensures, or other credentials that will help us understand your previous exposure to this kind of work. Please be frank, minimal experience in this area is not a preclusion to the program, we simply want to understand your background. (450 words or less)

                  • MSiMH: Group Settings

                    This is an experiential program in which students are expected to participate in self-reflection and their own psychological exploration. Thus, the success of this program is highly dependent upon a safe and supportive group dynamic. Tell us about your experiences and style as a group member, how you resolve interpersonal conflicts, and how you see yourself adding to the richness and preservation of the group. Please include challenges you experience in group settings and where you may need help with this. (450 words or less)

                  • MSiMH: Personal Assessment

                    While most program applications ask you to demonstrate how adept, skilled or advanced you are—here we are looking to get a sense of your curiosity, humility and self-awareness. Please tell us about your growing edges, issues you have worked on or are working on, or challenges you experience in just “being human.” Discuss your ability to receive feedback and reflection regarding these edges, and include examples of when this has worked well and not so well for you. (450 words or less)

                  • MSiMH: Challenging Experiences

                    Because this is a training and not a group therapy program, we expect students to be able to adequately manage their psychological and physical processes, be self-aware, and able to access medical and psychological support as needed. Please describe your current support network, available resources, and how you choose to manage challenging experiences. (450 words or less)
