UB masters in chinese herbology

Overview

The Masters degree in Science – Chinese Herbology (MS-CH) program joins the MS-Ac degree program and the MS-TCM degree program within the Acupuncture Institute and will be a part of the Health Sciences Division which also includes physician assistant, nutrition, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, and dental hygiene.

The MS-CH program will be primarily residential with students completing 50% of their course work and 100% of their clinical rotations in residence. The Asian/Chinese Herbology (ACH) courses will be offered in the blended format with 50% of the didactic program offered online and 50% during 4 weekends each semester, and an additional 3 weekends each summer for a total of 11 weekends a year. Students will participate in an online environment to complete their Asian/Chinese Herbology studies.

The MS-CH is limited to those who currently hold licensure or registration as healthcare professionals. The MS-CH program will not expand graduates’ scope of practice. There is no independent licensing for Chinese herbal practitioners in the US. Please consult your state’s licensing authority regarding state-specific scope of practice for licensed health practitioners in the area of herbal prescribing.

The MS-CH degree can be used as preparation for the national board exams in Chinese herbology only by those who have accredited acupuncture degrees. Only upon passing the requisite NCCAOM exams in Chinese Herbology, practitioners may use the title “Diplomate in Chinese Herbology.”
