The Master of Science in Oriental Medicine
The M.S.O.M. consists of training in the five branches of classical Oriental medicine: acupuncture, herbal medicine, physical therapy, nutrition, and exercise/breathing therapy. The majority of the program is devoted to the study and practice of acupuncture and herbal medicine. Students also complete graduate-level studies in Oriental medicine and Western science. The M.S.O.M. degree meets the requirements for licensure in all states, including California, with the addition of extra clinic hours and Western science electives required by the State of California.
