A Distinctive Curriculum

Our 121-credit hour program immerses students in the same comprehensive training as in the oriental medicine program, with less focus on the study of Chinese herbal medicine.

Acupuncture students at National University receive a thorough curriculum in topics like meridian theory, point location and oriental medical diagnosis. They also learn fundamental biomedical science and modern medical diagnostics including coursework in radiology, pathology, physiology, microbiology and public health.
