Acupuncture practioners in New York State are medical professionals licensed by the State Education Department, under Regents’ direction, which administers professional regulation through its Office of the Professions, assisted by the State Boards for the Professions.

Guided by the Regents, a citizen body, acupuncture practitioners are educated within New York State’s unified system of education – The University of the State of New York. This recognizes the key role education plays in both preparing licensed professionals and in ensuring their continuous development.
