If you have decided to have a medical doctor administer acupuncture treatment, ask to see their certificate of passing the AMBA (American Board of Medical Acupuncture) Certificate Examination.

The medical doctors that have taken and passed this examination are more qualified to administer acupuncture, although the requirements to take this examination are still minimal compared to the Licensed Acupuncturist examination thru the NCCAOM.

In order to take this (AMBA) examination the medical doctor has to have a minimum of 300 hours of acupuncture education. The medical doctors who have taken and passed this examination will have the initials after their name: DABMA (Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Acupuncture).
