Online National Toolkit Publications
From 2015-2016 I was a member of NCCAOM's Hospital-based Practice Task Force.  From these discussions, the committee created documents that are published on NCCAOM's website.  These are available for free to NCCAOM® Diplomates and for a low cost to non-Diplomates through the website:

Hospital Credentialing Toolkits for Acupuncturists and their Hospital Sponsors
  • The first is a toolkit, "Credentialing of Acupuncturists for Hospital-based Practice:  A Resource Guide for NCCAOM® Diplomates".   NCCAOM® published this on their website July 2016.
  • The second NCCAOM® toolkit is a collaboration with the Academic Collaborative for Integrative Health (ACIH). “Credentialing Licensed Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Professionals for Practice in Healthcare Organizations:  An Overview and Guidance for Hospital Administrators, Acupuncturists and Educators”.  Published by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®).  October 2016.
