ACAOM conducts national survey on degree titles

The Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (‘ACAOM’ or ‘Commission’) initiated a modified Delphi process, in January 2016 utilizing an independent principal investigator and committee to determine whether there is consensus among relevant stakeholders on degree titles relating to current ACAOM Masters, postgraduate Doctorate (DAOM) and the new Professional Doctorate (formerly First Professional Doctorate (FPD)) programs.  The final results were reviewed at the Commission’s February 2017 meeting and approval was granted to conduct a national survey.

The national survey on degree titles seeks input from all relevant stakeholders on ACAOM degree titles and was designed considering the results of the Delphi process, current titles in use throughout the U.S. and regulatory limitations.  The survey is being widely distributed among our communities of interest.  The survey instrument includes all questions and responses in English, Chinese and Korean to facilitate full participation.

The survey will be open until September 22, 2017 at 5:00pm U.S. Central Time.
