Why the Review Course?
Many physicians practicing medical acupuncture today obtained their original training a number of years ago. There are excellent training programs available where a physician can obtain initial training in medical acupuncture. There are also an increasing number of learning opportunities in specialized areas or in new areas of medical acupuncture, but there are limited opportunities available for physicians to obtain an organized review of that original knowledge acquired years earlier. With the development of a national Board Certification Examination there is more definite need to have such a broad-based course available to assist those preparing for the examination. The Academy members have indicated in annual surveys that this as a definite educational need. As a result, the Review Course was developed specifically in response to the education needs of these two groups of physicians.
Who should attend the Review Course?
This Review Course is intended for those physicians who have completed a formal training program in medical acupuncture of 300 or more hours, or have obtained equivalent training through other means, and have one or more years experience in the clinical use of medical acupuncture. Those physicians who obtained their training four or more years ago should find the Review Course useful as a refresher to that original training. Those physicians who intend to sit for the ABMA Board Certification Examination within the next 12 months should find the Review Course particularly helpful as an organized review of the basic areas of knowledge that would be covered in such an examination. Note: the 2021 Exam date is June 27.
