This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on April 2, 2023 - 1pm PDT, 4pm EDT.


This event will look at basic medical ethics and how they apply to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical practices. It will cover the five basic principles/areas every practitioner should know. It then goes on to explore fundamental medical ethics including looking at the works of Hippocrates and Sun Si Miao and discussing the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment as well as NCCAOM’s Code of Ethics.
