Mission Statement
  Southwest Acupuncture College is a classical school of Oriental medicine offering an accredited professional degree program leading to a Master of Acupuncture (MAc) or a combined Master of Acupuncture with a Chinese herbal medicine specialization (MAc/Chms). With the primary responsibility of educating students to become independent healthcare providers, our foremost goal is to provide excellence in the education of those prospective practitioners. A concomitant goal of the college, to cultivate service to the community in this emerging field of effective medical care, is fostered in the curriculum and the educational format as well as the life of the college community through our on-site, low-cost, public clinic and numerous off campus extern clinics that offer free services. In order to accomplish the goals of sustaining the highest quality of education and promoting the greatest caliber and realization of professional performance, the staff and faculty are continually reevaluating the program and supporting areas of institutional activity, seeking ways to enhance and maintain the college’s standard of excellence.
