The Medical Acupuncture Review Course has been developed to provide a broad-based refresher course on the major subject matter areas with which a well-trained physician should be familiar. The review course is especially useful as a refresher for those who obtained their acupuncture training some time ago and for those who are seeking an organized review prior to taking the ABMA Board Certification Examination.

The overall objectives of the Medical Acupuncture Review Course are for a participant to be able to:

  • Analyze and solidify previously acquired knowledge and experience in medical acupuncture
  • Organize and reinforce understanding of the basic material appropriate for a physician practicing acupuncture in North America
  • Differentiate and examine participant’s previous studies of certain specialized aspects of acupuncture not always utilized in traditional practice


  • Mitchell Elkiss, DO, FAAMA
  • Tate Kauffman, MD
  • Bradley T. Lawrence, MD, FAAMA
  • Joseph Walker, III, MD, DABMA


The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture® (AAMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture® designates this live internet activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


The course is organized into 8 lecture sessions that have been pre-recorded. The sections will be available on certain release dates and course participants will have 7-10 days to review the lectures at their convenience and complete a short quiz after each on the material within that section. There will be a live summary/discussion session for every 2 sections of material – the schedule is below. The faculty will provide a summary, answer any student questions or delve deeper into a topic. Case presentations from the students will also take place. There are also some additional independent study materials – there will be some case studies required to be submitted and the other materials are available as additional study materials.

Please review the overall course materials before beginning lesson 1.  These can be found at the top of this course page.  Handouts for each lesson are included on the individual lesson pages.
