Mar 01, 2024 12:00AM ● By Natural Awakenings Milwaukee
In early February, Midwest College of Oriental Medicine rebranded to become Midwest College of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine (MCAHM). The name change reflects a broader trend of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and helps the college align more closely with modern standards of cultural sensitivity and specificity.

As a leading acupuncture and herbal medicine school with two convenient locations in Racine, Wisconsin, and Skokie, Illinois, MCAHM offers the most traditional and comprehensive education in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and nutrition in the Midwest region.

The school was founded in 1979 and has been fully accredited since 1987. The MCAHM mission is to preserve traditional ideology and philosophies developed by ancient practitioners while incorporating current medical knowledge and techniques.

Students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition combined with a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine, and can graduate in as little as 36 months.

MCAHM is located at 6232 Bankers Rd., Racine, Wisconsin; and 8950 Gross Point Rd., Ste. 400, Skokie, Illinois. To apply, or to get more information including the dates of upcoming quarters, call 262-554-2010 or visit
