Welcome to the State of California Acupuncture Board

Doctorate / Ph.D. Programs

There are a lot of doctorate and Ph.D. programs that are not approved by this state. If you are contemplating entering one of these programs, it is recommended that you first check with the Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to see if the program has been approved. You may also verify the programs on BPPE's website @ www.bppve.ca.gov under directory of institutions.
