University teaching of acupuncture

| February 8, 2010 | 0 Comments | 340 views

Acupuncture is now established as a degree course at Bachelor level in at least two UK universities, run over three or five years, with a higher degree Masters course available for qualified physiotherapists. Graduates should have spent considerable time gaining clinical experience with patients, together with a sound knowledge of basic medical sciences, point selection and research methodology. Colleges and other institutions offering acupuncture education and training are able to apply to the BAAB for the institution and / or courses to be accredited. The rigorous accreditation process should ensure that only those organisations complying substantially with 17 essential requirements achieve recognised status (BAAB, 1998). The assessment programme should ensure that each training establishment is externally monitored against known assessment criteria. It should be expected that acupuncture students from any training background, as well as those practising the other 'discrete clinical disciplines', should be able to demonstrate the levels of competence recommended by the BMA (1993) (Box 1).
