ABOUT THE NCCAOM

The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine was established in 1982 to establish, assess, and promote recognized standards of competence and safety in acupuncture and Oriental medicine. The examination consists of three modules: Acupuncture, Point Location, and Biomedicine. NCCAOM certification allows the designation "Diplomate in Acupuncture” or “Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM)." Many US states, including New York, require NCCAOM certification as a condition of acupuncture licensing.
