Ethics Requirement - 1 Credit Course: The Ethical Relationship Between Acupuncturists

Over the course of 4 years of Acupuncture training, future Acupuncturists are mostly taught how to diagnose diseases and treat patients.

This course is an attempt at making clear the ethics of relationships between Acupuncture practitioners as well as other situations that may occur.
We will discuss areas of our Acupuncture practice where problems may arise, read examples, and learn how best to resolve them ethically.
