The Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), formerly the National Accreditation Commission for Schools and Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NACSCAOM), was established in June 1982 by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM). Its mission is to foster excellence in acupuncture and Oriental Medicine education. The commission acts as an independent body to evaluate first-professional Master's degree and professional Master's level certificate and diploma programs in acupuncture, and first-professional Master's degree and professional Master's level certificate and diploma programs in Oriental Medicine with a concentration in both acupuncture and herbal therapies for a level of performance, integrity, and quality that entitles the practitioners to the confidence of the educational community and the public they serve. The commission is the sole accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation to accredit professional programs in the field. ACAOM is also a charter member of the Association of Specialized and Profes-sional Accreditors.
