The American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

AAAOM collaboratively serves more than 28,000 licensed practitioners in the U.S. to ensure a well-regulated profession that informs and protects public health and safety. While not a regulatory board, we work to serve the profession through data collection and release of information to the public, lobbying for law changes in the industry, and collaboration and connection to other practitioners and medical providers. AAAOM is strictly a volunteer organization with the goal to move forward the profession of AOM. 


The Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

The ACAOM is the regulatory agency that accredits acupuncture colleges in the United States and is regulated by the U.S. Department of Education. They are a private, not-for-profit organization founded in 1982 by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) and the American Association of Oriental Medicine (now AAAOM). Recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a 'specialized and professional' accrediting agency, ACAOM's primary purposes are to establish comprehensive educational and institutional requirements for acupuncture and Oriental medicine programs, and to accredit programs and institutions that meet those requirements. As an independent agency, the Commission's decisions are not subject to review or change by any outside organization or regulatory body.


Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

The CCAOM is a council of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine school representatives including school owners, presidents, deans and/or administrators. This organization is a consortium of the schools and not a regulatory or accrediting body. Together, these schools collaborate to create cohesion between programs and promote best practices. There are currently 62 fully accredited acupuncture schools in the U.S. as of 2011: 53 of these are CCAOM members.

National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

The NCCAOM creates the national board exam used in most states to grant licensure for acupuncturists. Their mission "is to establish, assess and promote recognized standards of competence and safety in acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for the protection and benefit of the public."

中醫授權委員會

ACAOM是一個由美國教育部進行監管的,專爲美國針灸學校進行授權的管理機構。這是一個"由CCAOM(美國中醫大學理事會)和AAAOM(全美中醫公會)兩大組織在1982年創建的私人非營利性組織。ACAOM被美國教育部認爲是一個‘專職並且專業’的授權機構,它的主要目的是確立對于中醫項目在教育上和制度上的全面要求,以及爲滿足要求的項目和機構進行授權。作爲一個獨立機構,委員會的決定並不聽從于任何其他組織或管理體系的意見和改變。”


美國中醫大學理事會

CCAOM是由中醫學校代表們産生的理事會,它包括學校擁有者,校長,院長,以及/或管理人員。該組織是一個校際聯盟而不是一個管理或授權體系。這些學校一起合作創造項目之間的緊密結合並且提供最好的實踐練習。截止2011年全美共有62個被完全授權的針灸學校,其中有53個都是CCAOM的成員。


國家中醫檢定委員會

NCCAOM制定了被大多數州用以決定是否爲針灸治療師頒發從業許可的測試。他們的任務"是確立,檢測和提高針對針灸及中藥的效用、安全性的公認標准以致力于保護和利益公衆。”
