The Diplomate of Acupuncture ( NCCAOM - Dipl.Ac ) training and competency is in sharp contrast to the acupuncture training of other healthcare professionals such as chiropractors or registered nurses or even medical doctors who typically receive 100-300 hours of abbreviated training. These other healthcare professionals only treat a limited number of points.
