Breaking Ground in NJ
The Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine is New Jersey's first school of acupuncture. Founded in 1997, it is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), the organization that sets and maintains the standards for acupuncture schools nationwide. Graduates receive a Certificate in Acupuncture and are qualified to sit for the NCCAOM national board exam, a prerequisite for state licensure.
The purpose of the Eastern School of Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine is to offer professional training, education and services in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and the traditional healing modalities that enhance the health and well-being of the greater community.
The intern clinic Acupuncture and traditional Oriental healing methods have provided humans with a safe and effective way of dealing with pain, injury and illnesses for thousands of years. Practitioners of western medicine began embracing acupuncture as it has directly demonstrated its value to their patients. In fact, we have trained numerous MD's in acupuncture, noting their desire to better serve the needs of their patients.
One part of the Eastern School's commitment is to serve the community. Under the guidance of the College's licensed clinic supervisors, students treat a diverse population and a wide variety of ailments. This low cost student clinic is open to the public at convenient times.
The Clinic also provides third year students with invaluable learning opportunities which include working on-site in veterans hospitals and physical therapy centers through our external program.
