The Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine recently announced the change of its name to Texas Health and Science University.

“Our name change means another giant step to move the school’s global efforts to work with more universities and implement our strategic initiatives!” says Lisa Ping Hui Lin, E.M.B.A., President and Chief Executive Officer. President Lin continued, “We celebrate our latest accomplishment as another ‘first,’ the ‘first university’ in Texas to offer a degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and the ‘first school of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine’ accredited in the 100 year history of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).”

The name change will be accompanied by the expansion of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which currently offers the Master of Science program in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, to include a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree program, authorized by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), and the development of the College of Business Sciences, which will offer a new Master of Business Administration degree program.

A Masters of science in Acupuncture?

Presumably they will be producing a lot of graduates who are aware, due to their rigorous and high quality science education, that acupuncture is nonsense?
