Educational Requirements (Bridge)

The DAcHM/DAc Bridge Completion Program is available to licensed acupuncturists who have earned a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Traditional Chinese Medicine or Acupuncture. A transfer credit evaluation will be performed to ensure that your previous studies meet the Five Branches Bridge Program standards.

The prerequisite for the DAcHM/DAc Bridge Program is 90-semester units of undergraduate coursework. Upon review of your transcripts, additional corequisites such as General Biology, Psychology and Chemistry may be required. If you have studied abroad, had an unconventional education, or do not have an undergraduate degree, please send your unofficial transcripts to the admissions office for pre-qualification evaluation. 

Essential Computer Skills

Online courses rely upon computer technology to connect students with instructors, providing you with access to higher education without having to be physically present. To complete an online distance-education program you will need a computer, desktop, laptop or tablet, with reliable internet access. You will need to be efficient in navigating the Internet and using the Moodle online classroom environment.
