Accreditation Compliance and Ongoing Assessment
To ensure that our graduates get the full benefit of an accredited degree, we diligently review each course within our curriculum every semester with regard to course hours and content and make improvements on an ongoing basis to achieve the maximum educational benefit for our students.
FCIM uses ACAOM's clock-hour-to-credit-hour conversion formula: 15 hours of classroom instruction or 30 hours of supervised clinical training equal one credit hour.
The curriculum and training directly support the mission and objectives of the program. Classroom instruction and clinical training are broken down into specific categories as follows:
- Acupuncture & Oriental Medical Theory: 932 hours | 62.1333 credits
- Oriental Herbal Study: 556 hours | 37.0667 credits
- Western Biomedical Science: 544 hours | 36.2667 credits
- Clinical Training: 900 hours | 30.0000 credits
- Business & Counseling: 96 hours | 6.4000 credits
- Total: 3028 hours | 171.87 credits
To graduate, students must complete all coursework and clinical training (including at least 350 patient treatments). Training in the program is both challenging and rigorous, requiring students to demonstrate both breadth and depth of knowledge and skills.
FCIM courses with the same whole number designation are sequential courses—those with lower decimal numbers are prerequisites for those with higher decimal numbers. For example, 530.1H (Herbology I) is a prerequisite for 530.2H (Herbology II), which in turn is the prerequisite for 530.3H (Herbology III).
Course scheduling follows normal course sequencing from semester to semester. For example, students normally take Acupuncture Point Location I before taking Acupuncture Point Location II. However, the Dean of Academic Affairs may grant permission for a student to be scheduled in related courses concurrently. The Dean of Academic Affairs may also allow nonsequential scheduling of courses for transfer students, licensed physicians and others with previous training.
The type of course is designated as follows:
- A = Acupuncture
- H = Herbology
- W = Western Science
- C = Clinical
- B = Business/Counseling
- Hour-to-credit conversion formula: 15 hours of class instruction = 1 semester credit
- 30 hours of clinic training = 1 semester credit
