MBA Consultation on revised registration standards for doctor acupuncturists

Do proposed changes to requirements for doctors practising acupuncture affect you?

If you’re a medical practitioner and want to use the title ‘acupuncturist’, you need to have your registration endorsed by the Medical Board of Australia, or also be registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia.

We’re consulting on proposed changes to the Medical Board’s registration standard for Endorsement of registration for acupuncture for registered medical practitioners.

There’s just a few days left to tell the MBA what you think – the consultation closes on 5 April 2021.

Read more about these changes in the consultation paper on the Board’s website under Current consultations. The Board is keen to hear from practitioners, organisations and the community.

Written submissions can be emailed to [email protected], marked: ‘Consultation on draft revised standard for acupuncture endorsement’.
