DAOM Program Earns Full Accreditation

For nearly a decade and a half the Yo San University Board of Trustees has provided the vision for the planning and implementation of the program.  In addition to the institutional support, all DAOM students, alumni, faculty and staff members, and especially DAOM Program Director, Dr. Andrea Murchison, deserve hearty congratulations for making this milestone achievement a reality.


By:

Yo San University is very pleased to announce that effective September 16, 2013 its Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) Program has been awarded full accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM).     The announcement of accreditation by ACAOM followed more than ten years of development of the program and four years of its implementation.   The accreditation process included significant examination of the program at the stages of “Substantive Change” achieved in 2009, and “Candidacy” achieved in 2011, and culminated in the March 2013 site visit by four distinguished doctoral level peer site visitors, who again scrutinized all aspects of the program.   Their observations resulted in the generation of a report that designated “compliance” regarding each of the fourteen rigorous program standards specified by ACAOM.

The Yo San University DAOM Program, which has already graduated two cohorts, has two specialty areas:   Reproductive Medicine/Women’s Health and Healthy Aging/Longevity.   Besides advanced training in the specialty areas, the program provides intensive didactic and clinical work in integrative medicine as well as a carefully supported component that facilitates the on-time completion of a quality original research project by each candidate.

For nearly a decade and a half the Yo San University Board of Trustees has provided the vision for the planning and implementation of the program.  In addition to the institutional support, all DAOM students, alumni, faculty and staff members, and especially DAOM Program Director, Dr. Andrea Murchison, deserve hearty congratulations for making this milestone achievement a reality.
