Midwest College of Oriental Medicine Dunbar
The forefront of holistic and alternative medical training and education
About Midwest College of Oriental Medicine Dunbar
Established in 1979, the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine originally aimed to educate students in the practice of acupuncture. It has since grown to encompass a range of programs, combining Chinese Medicine with a comprehensive education in Western science in order to prepare students for careers across the health care spectrum. In addition to acupuncture, the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine offers studies in the traditional Chinese modalities of Tui-Na massage, Chinese herbs, and moxibustion.
Relatively new to the United States at the time of the school’s founding, acupuncture today is one of the most popular holistic modalities in the country. At the Midwest College, students can enroll in a three-year course of study culminating in certification in acupuncture at the master’s level or a four-year program, which leads to both a bachelor of science in nutrition and a master of science in Oriental Medicine. Additionally, the institution is the first in the Midwest to offer a dual doctoral degree in acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Students attend classes at one of the school’s two campuses: the main campus in Racine, Wisconsin, or the satellite campus in Chicago. For more information, including a course catalog and a complete breakdown of tuition, visit Acupuncture.edu.
