Medical Acupuncture Training for Physicians
Acupuncture can be an alternative to opioids in some cases of pain management. AcuMed is the premier provider of education in Integrated Structural Acupuncture. This acupuncture system uses a point verification method, allowing the practitioner to verify the efficacy of their point selection, ensuring optimal diagnosis and treatment. Treatment points are verified to demonstrate their immediate effect on patient symptoms. In this way, both the practitioner and patient actively participate in the healing process. This system is effective for musculoskeletal, neurological, and internal medical conditions. The system also integrates modalities, such as manual therapies, nutrition and lifestyle coaching to formulate the most comprehensive treatment and best patient results.
The course is directed by Dr. Joseph Audette, a recognized world expert in the use of acupuncture point verification methods and acupuncture needling techniques for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. The course provides over 300 CME hours of training in medical acupuncture.
If you are a practicing D.O. or M.D., this series offers a chance for you to review or learn core osteopathic manipulative medicine techniques. It takes place over five weekends, providing eight hours of introduction on Friday, followed by 12 hours of clinical application on Saturday and Sunday.
