Home / Who We Are / Accreditations


The American Academy of Health and Wellness (AAHW) and its following programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM):

1) Master of Acupuncture

2) Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine specialization.

3) Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

At its August 2020 meeting, the Commission placed AAAOM 
on probation for failing to meet one or more of 
ACAOM’s Criteria for Accreditation as evidenced by 
a revocation order issued to AAAOM by the Minnesota 
Office of Higher Education. 

AAAOM subsequently completed a change in ownership and name
change (to “American Academy of Health and Wellness”), 
and AAHW is scheduled for Commission review at 
its August 2021 meeting.

Accreditation status and notes may be viewed on the ACAOM Directory.

ACAOM is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the specialized accreditation agency for institutions/programs preparing acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners. ACAOM is located at 8941 Aztec Drive, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55347; phone 952/212-2434; fax 952/657-7068; www.acaom.org
