All three SIEAM programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) 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). Students in the Masters programs are currently eligible for financial aid and we are awaiting approval of financial aid for the doctoral program.
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.
