Our CEU classes are only the beginning at Advanced Acupuncture
What you don’t see in class is where the value begins….
At Advanced Acupuncture, we provide a wide range of both short and long-term training, as well as comprehensive professional development programs to assist you in achieving a profitable state-of-the art acupuncture practice. Our world acclaimed-staff provides you with programs that are tailored to your professional and educational needs.
I. Certification Program: Our basic CEU program is not only a means to introduce you to new protocols and business tools, but is also a comprehensive series of courses that ensures you have the tools to run a successful Acupuncture practice. The certification program is 180 hours of certified CEU (Continuing Education Units), comprised of 120 hours of core courses and an additional 60 hours of elective courses. The training is composed of weekend-based classes that can be taken in sequences that work with your schedule and time restrictions. Areas of specialty in the certification program include Primary Care, Wellness/Spa, OBGYN and Pain Management.
II. After successfully completing our core CEU training program, Advanced Acupuncture’s clinical internship program provides you with a hands-on training program where you will work in our offices and hospitals and, under the skilled direction of Dr. Hu, have access to our patients and training in the latest protocols. Clinical internships have a scope of 40 to 160 hours of hands-on training, depending on the field of experience.
III. Resident Program: This program is an extension of the certificate program. This is a salaried position that provides you additional comprehensive training in both clinical and hospital settings for those who are pre-qualified based on their successful completion of the Certificate Program and Clinical Internship.
Clinical Networking: Our vast network of professional contacts is available to you through our clinical networking program. Years of experience at the regional, state, national and international level provides us with a vast group of cutting-edge health care professionals with acupuncture, TCM, and allopathic training. Only those clinics that meet our rigorous standards are included in our clinical network. Personal knowledge, on-site interviews and review of operations are all methods we utilize to determine that the practices that are included in our network meet our standards. In short, our clinical networking bridges prescreened acupuncture practices with qualified practitioners. As well, we provide Specialty Referrals to unite specific interests in acupuncture with specific practice needs.
Clinical Research: With two clinics and privileges at four hospitals in Southern California, we have both the skill and access to establish, execute and mentor clinical research trials. In this program we provide you with skills in research methodology and assist you with project assignments.
Job Assistance: Our principals have vast connections with acupuncturists, allopathic doctors, and spa operators who are all in great need of certified acupuncturists. Our network can provide you with job placement or specialty referral in an environment of your choice that allows you to use your skill set for professional and financial rewards. We can process your application on line.
Business Consulting: We appreciate that during the many years of training to become a skilled acupuncturist there have been few courses that provide you with the tools to run a profitable practice. Our certificate program offers training in these areas; however, sometimes that is just the beginning. We are prepared to work with you in a one-to-one capacity in establishing, repositioning or expanding your practice.
Franchise: Each of our principals has over two decades in business and acupuncture. We have a complete franchise package which provides you with name-recognized branding and all of the procedures, protocols and support necessary to set up a turn-key acupuncture operation. In our package we provide you with information on how to recruit, screen, hire, train, motivate, and retain employees. In addition, we provide you help with standard operation procedures for the financial and administrative sides of your business, billing information, equipment selection, and a full array of sales and marketing support.
