Program of Study

The Master of Acupuncture and Master of Oriental Medicine are 4-year resident programs that require a minimum of 120 instructional weeks to be completed in not less than 36 calendar months. The maximum time frame to complete the programs are no more than eight years. CAHM allows flexible programs of study to accommodate a student’s level of motivation, commitment, and time considerations.

 

Full-Time Program

Students in the Full-Time Program complete the program in 4 calendar years / 48 months. See the 4-year program.

 

Half-Time Program
Sometimes a student may have work or family commitments, which do not allow for Full-Time Program enrollment. Students registering for 6 or more credits a semester are considered Half-Time and are still eligible to receive student Financial Aid. Students are expected to complete the program in more than four, and less than eight years. Students will be required to meet the graduation requirements that are in effect at the time of their expected graduation, rather than graduation requirements in effect at the time of their admission into the program.

 

Part-Time Study
Students registering for less than 6 credits a semester are not eligible for Financial Aid. Part-time students are expected to complete the program in more than four, and less than eight years. Part-time students will be required to meet the graduation requirements that are in effect at the time of their expected graduation, rather than graduation requirements in effect at the time of their admission into the program.

 

Accelerated Full-Time Program

The Master’s Of Acupuncture and Master's Of Oriental Medicine programs are 4 year academic programs, which may be completed by students with high motivation and commitment in not less than 36 calendar months. Presently, WMI offers 45 weeks per calendar year, which is divided into three fifteen week semesters (Fall, Spring and Summer) per academic year. Regarding the 36 month accelerated and regular programs, the two programs have the same requirements of didactic hours and clinical training. However to ensure a student may not graduate from the WMI in less than the requisite 36 months they will not be allowed to register for all the courses in each of the eight semesters set out below and must elect to complete at least one course in the semester in which they will be graduating. The maximum time frame to complete the program is no more than eight years. See the 3-year program.
