Both of SIEAM’s master's degrees are accredited by the Accreditation Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), eligible for financial aid, and lead to licensure in Washington state as well as states around the country (see the individual state licensure requirements for whether a M.Ac. or M.Ac.O.M. is required).
SIEAM’s doctoral degree (D.A.H.M.) includes the three years of study in the M.Ac.O.M. plus an additional year of clinical practice and individualized specialty training. Those enrolled in this program receive licensure at the end of three years through their enrollment in the accredited M.Ac.O.M. program.
*The D.A.H.M. is not accredited or reaccredited by ACAOM at this time. Graduates of the D.A.H.M. program are not considered to have graduated from an ACAOM accredited or candidate program and may not rely on ACAOM accreditation or candidacy for professional licensure or other purposes. This program is eligible for ACAOM accreditation and SIEAM is in the process of seeking ACAOM candidacy/accreditation for the program. However SIEAM can provide no assurance that candidacy or accreditation will be granted by ACAOM. SIEAM also does not have financial aid for the fourth year of this program.
