Acupuncture (M.S.Ac.) Degree

UB acupuncture graduate degree program

Master of Science in Acupuncture Degree Program Details

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the most respected healing professions around the globe. It serves a quarter of the world’s population and has increased in public acceptance in the United States and Europe as the fastest growing complementary health care field. Oriental medicine has gained this respect by being both the most ancient written form of medical therapy known and a form of medicine with excellent clinical results.

Integrative Health Care Preparation

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which encompasses acupuncture, herbal therapy, manual therapy, diet counseling, exercise and breathing techniques, has been in use for thousands of years. Over the millennia, the Asian community has continuously refined this ancient healing art. During the last century, this refinement has included integration of Western medical sciences within the paradigm of TCM.

The development of the Master of Science in Acupuncture degree program integrates the medical concepts of both the East and West. The student will learn modern and classical acupuncture and TCM medical theory as well as up-to-date western bio-medical sciences.

The Master of Science in Acupuncture degree program’s goal is to provide acupuncture and TCM training consistent with the developing traditions on Asia and the growing modern health care system in the United States.

Having an opportunity to work alone and in conjunction with other health care practitioners in the Health Sciences Center, the students will be able to integrate the care of patients with other health care providers. Thus, the student gains a “real world” advantage before entering private practice.

The Levels of Health II: Homeopathy Seminar @ John J. Cox Student Center
Sep 17 – Sep 18 all-day

This course will be a concise introduction to the new model of health devised by Professor George Vithoulkas, namely The Levels of Health. This follows the publication of his latest book of the same name in 2010.

Approved for 12 hours of foundational education towards CHC hours.

Featured Speaker (via video conference):

Other Presenters

  • Florence McPherson, ND., Adjunct Professor of Homeopathy at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine
  • Andrew Ward, LCH, Dip.IACH, R.S.Hom, experienced classical homeopath practicing in London, long-term student of Professor Vithoulkas, teacher, and head of E-Courses for IACH in UK
  • Kim Elia, CEO of WholeHealthNow. International teacher, historian, and dynamic lecturer on homeopathy

The concept of The Levels of Health will be presented. Within the context of the three levels of the human organism, the parameters of the model will be explained – 4 groups and 12 levels- that define the levels of health to which a patient belongs. This is done in order to gain a better insight into the patient’s disease state and therefore to reach a better understanding of the prognosis, before and during treatment. This classification helps us to understand the patient’s general condition and helps us to refine the prognosis and intelligently use any information to evaluate the remedy reaction and subsequent action needed. A proper evaluation of the case progression is essential and only possible with the correct knowledge. The rules and guidelines of this model are clearly presented and will enable the student to evaluate more successfully his/her case and therefore achieve a better outcome. Power point presentation mixed with case examples and one video case will be presented.
