What kind training does an acupuncturist need to practice?

Acupuncturists, in a 4 year Master of Science program, receive training in both western medical sciences (anatomy, chemistry, physiology, biology, pharmacology, etc.) and Chinese medicine including acupuncture, herbal medicine, acupressure, Tai Ji, and a variety of other subjects. Training is given at colleges of Chinese medicine, which are accredited by the State of California and the national certification organization. Additionally, acupuncturists are required to complete 50 continuing education units every two years to maintain their acupuncture license.
