The Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (MSOM) programs are fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM).
THE CURRICULUM CONSISTS OF DIDACTIC AND CLINICAL TRAINING:
- 2,130 hours (213 quarter units) of academic coursework
- 960 hours (48 units) of clinical internship at the Oriental Medical Center
The MSOM can be completed in four years, ideal for full-time students eager to become licensed practitioners. The program is also available part-time for students with other commitments. First-year students focus on academics: learning the fundamentals of Oriental Medicine, Herbology, and Western Medicine. In the second year, students begin the observation portion of their clinical training: shadowing and learning from more advanced students and clinical supervisors. By the third year, students are actively participating in the clinic, taking patients and working with supervisors on the best treatment strategies. The final year focuses on the most advanced training, specialized topics, practice management, and electives.
The MSOM program is offered in English and Korean.
