MAc and MAc-CHM Clinical Opportunities
Each student in our Master of Acupuncture degree programs serves a full-year clinical internship. In addition to learning clinical applications of Chinese herbal medicine and proper documentation procedures, you will obtain important personal and business skills you’ll need to help build your own practice. Working under the supervision of our faculty clinicians, you will have access to professionals from other specialties, as well as our well-equipped treatment rooms and fully stocked herbal dispensary.
Your clinical experience can be completed at our on-campus Whole Health Center or at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.
At the Whole Health Center, you’ll learn first-hand how to practice acupuncture under clinical supervision. You’ll have access to professionals from other specialties, our residents, our faculty clinicians, as well as use of our diagnostic imaging and MRI facilities.
The Stroger Hospital acupuncture and oriental medicine clerkship for NUHS students is one of very few hospital-based acupuncture training opportunities in the nation. Our interns work in an integrative medical setting with physicians as part of a multi-specialty treatment team in the Stroger clinic for pain management.
