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.
