Work that you love.
Work that makes a difference.
Work that is so satisfying, you can't wait to come back in tomorrow.
Do you wish you could say this about your job? Community acupuncturists do; and we know that we are onto something special. Every day in our clinics, we see people come in with pain and stress, and leave smiling and feeling better. We have a tool that almost anybody can afford, that works reliably and simply to heal. And with it, we create peace in our communities.
But becoming a community acupuncturist is not nearly as easy as getting a treatment. Acupuncture school tuition is soaring; credit hours have become bloated; and educators in the field have very little practical experience to pass on to students. Most acupuncture schools require over $80,000 in tuition, and most graduates are not working in the field within five years of graduation.
If community acupuncture is going to continue to be available to all who rely on it for safe, effective, affordable healthcare, then we are going to have to make it easier for people to become community acupuncturists.
POCATech is here to make acupuncture education useful and affordable- just like community acupuncture!
