Spearheaded by NCCAOM®, the New Designation Means Greater Recognition Across Federal Agencies and Access to Programming


"Earning a distinct Standard Occupational Code for Acupuncturists is a milestone moment for the acupuncture and Oriental medicine profession. This event positions acupuncturists for a number of new opportunities," said Kory Ward-Cook, Ph.D., CAE, chief executive officer of NCCAOM. "The classification of 'Acupuncturists' as its own federally-recognized labor category both validates and bolsters the profession and positions the industry for growth."


The new code for Acupuncturists -- SOC - 29-1291, will be included in the next edition of the BLS Occupational Handbook, which will be published in 2018.
