Situated along the New England coastline, Rhode Island packs a lot of punch despite its small package. Whether staying at a bed-and-breakfast or exploring the bays and inlets, you’re sure to be struck by the beauty of the state, which is the smallest in the country by size. The state has many fine colleges and universities that will prepare you well for continuing your education in acupuncture school, should you so choose to do so. While Rhode Island doesn’t have its own acupuncture schools, many people choose to study this fast-growing medical field in the neighboring states of New York or Massachusetts and then return to the state to work as acupuncturists. Most acupuncture schools have three- or four-year programs of study that culminate in a master’s degree.
The curriculum in acupuncture schools generally complements traditional medical practices. Acupuncture is an assistive art used to enhance or complement modern Western medical treatment. After finishing your stint at an acupuncture school, Rhode Island requires that you pass a licensure exam given by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and apply for a license to practice acupuncture within the state.
