 ACAOM is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the specialized accreditation agency for institutions/programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners.

 The Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s entry-level professional doctoral programs, Doctor of Acupuncture and Doctor of Acupuncture with a Chinese herbal medicine specialization, approved to begin enrolling students, are not yet accredited or pre-accredited by ACAOM. Graduates of these programs are not considered to have graduated from an ACAOM-accredited or pre-accredited program and may not rely on ACAOM accreditation or pre-accreditation for professional licensure or other purposes.

 The professional doctoral (DAc and DAcCHM) programs are eligible for ACAOM accreditation, and the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine is currently in the process of seeking ACAOM accreditation for the programs. However, the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide no assurance that accreditation will be granted by ACAOM.
