Diplomate of Oriental Medicine

Earning a credential from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) represents a significant professional achievement. NCCAOM certification makes an important statement about professional competence that is recognized by regulatory bodies, the profession, and the public.

There are more than 50 schools of Oriental medicine in the country. NCCAOM Diplomates practice in virtually every state and international countries. The unprecedented growth and acceptance of Oriental medicine over the last 20 years is due in no small part to the existence of a legitimate certification and examination program based on national standards.

A Diplomate of Oriental Medicine has completed the required educational training in Oriental medical theory, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and biomedicine.  Lorraine Harris not only holds a license in Acupuncture but is also nationally certified as a Practitioner of Oriental Medicine because she has been awarded diplomate status in Oriental Medicine by the NCCAOM.
