2 Year Intensive Acupuncture Program
 
The Two Year Intensive Acupuncture Diploma Program and the Three Year Acupuncture Diploma Program share the same curriculum; the major difference is the time lines. In the Two Year Intensive Acupuncture Diploma Program, the clinical requirements run concurrent to the classroom and practical classes. In the Three Year Acupuncture Diploma Program the clinical requirements are fulfilled in a third year solely dedicated to clinical practice. Students are required to attend evening and weekend clinics during the school year and can earn a minimum of 20 clinic hours per week during the summer months.
