Applications indicating a deficiency in education hours will be evaluated based on three factors: formal education hours, clinical experience, and the level of knowledge and skills in Western medicine.
Limited transfer credit may be awarded for coursework from an accredited institution that supports the Doctoral program’s objectives and meets the standards for completion of the program. No more than one-third of the credits beyond the Master’s level program can be transferred. A transfer fee will apply to the evaluation of all courses transferred into the program. Please refer to Tuition and Fees for more information.
