Emperor’s College master’s program is the most comprehensive acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program in the nation, consisting of 2,240 classroom hours and 970 hours of clinic training. As a result, we have one of the highest pass rates on the national and California board exams. Year-in and year-out, we rate among the top 3 schools and our students are widely recognized to be the most prepared.

There is no other school in the country that makes available more opportunities for their students to learn and master their skills than Emperor’s College. Not only will you be working with an internationally trained faculty that is generally recognized to be the finest in the U.S. and among the top 5 in the world, you will have ample opportunity to get hands-on training outside the classroom and clinic through amazing externships, supervised volunteer actions, and even traveling abroad with faculty members bringing acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to underserved communities.

At Emperor’s, you will get an unparalleled education in Oriental Medicine as well as robust western medical instruction, but unlike most acupuncture schools, Emperor’s College students are offered a broad range of elective classes to select from. Throughout the curriculum, students at Emperor’s College are encouraged to take electives in nutrition, advanced herbal medicine, Korean acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, five element theory, classical Chinese medicine, acupressure, shiatsu, meditation, advanced tai chi, and advanced qi gong.

When you sit for your board exams and then beyond when you begin working in an established clinical practice or even creating your own private practice, you will be ready and prepared!
