The New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) and PHPD control their own admission process and standards. Any student accepted to NESA is eligible to apply for admittance into PHPD’s MS/PREP program.
The application window begins upon a student’s formal acceptance to NESA and ends on April 1 of his or her first NESA year. NESA students may still apply after this deadline, but completing both programs in three years is not possible in that case.
Students who exclusively take evening courses at NESA may find it impractical to enroll in the joint program since all Master’s in Pain courses are taught in the evening. Students are encouraged to work with both institutions to create an individual course schedule.
Graduates will receive two separate Master’s degrees, one from Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) and one from NESA. Both NESA and TUSM are independent institutions. Tufts University School of Medicine does not appear on the New England School of Acupuncture diploma nor does the New England School of Acupuncture appear on the Tufts University School of Medicine diploma.
