Both JFK and Kessler had physiatrists who practice acupuncture when I rotated there. I think NYU had a program to certify ppl for acupuncture. Mt. Sinai and Temple also had exposure to acupuncture. I can't remember if any of the other programs did or not. Columbia/Cornell has a "fellowship" in "kanpo" (traditional Chinese-Japanese herbal medicine).

i have an interest here, as well. i wrote several programs about 18 months ago and asked a barrage of questions as i started the process of finding the programs that i fancied. i wrote 35 of them and heard back from about 28 of them. this was a question I specifically asked them. i wish i still had the responses of most of the programs, but i only have the ones that i eventually applied to. here is what i can recall.

UVa - seems to have quite a bit of acupuncture opportunity.
Spaulding ? there are docs practicing it and there are ample electives to pursue it
JFK ? yes if you search it out
UCDavis ? not that I recall
Rush ? if you search it out

i am certain that there are more. several of the other programs were open to the idea of allowing their residents to complete the ucla course in medical acupuncture (or any similar) during the course of their training, either with elective time or on the side. sorry that i no longer have info on all the other programs i contacted. i suggest shipping off an e-mail to the coordinators of any program you think you might be interested in. most of them are more than receptive to such inquiries. certainly take the opportunity to ask any other questions you have too. when you get the larger picture of each program, your interests and their intricacies will come to light. it makes the application/ranking process much clearer.

Has anyone heard of any reputable acupuncture courses given to residents, interns, and medical students? What are the fees usually associated with these types of courses? How do I find out more?

It seems like it may be difficult to get decent training in acupuncture during your residency when there are so many other areas of PM&R to master.

Thanks,

J-rod

The UCLA course is the training course I've heard that is most talked about. However, it's a pretty big time commitment. My dad took it, it required two sessions (I think two weeks each) out on the West Coast, as well as a whole slew of videos, SAEs, etc. I can get more info from pops if people are interested in this...
