Message from the California Acupuncture Board

Dear Licensed Acupuncturist:

Thank you for participating in this study of the acupuncture profession in California, a project of the California Acupuncture Board (Board). For completing all questions on this survey, you will receive 4 continuing education credits.*

The Board is conducting an occupational analysis of the acupuncturist practice in California. The Board is collecting information about the tasks performed by acupuncturists in California and the knowledge required to perform those tasks. We will use this information to ensure that the examination used for licensure of acupuncturists reflects current acupuncture practice in California.

Please take the time to complete the survey as it relates to your work as an acupuncturist.

For your convenience, you do not have to complete the survey in a single session. You can resume where you stopped as long as you reopen the survey from the same computer and use the same web browser. Before you exit, complete the page that you are on. The program will save responses only on completed pages. The weblink is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Your responses will be kept confidential. They will not be tied to your license or personal information. Individual responses will be combined with responses from other acupuncturists and only group data will be analyzed. 

If you have any questions or need assistance, please send an email to

To begin the survey, click Next. Please submit the completed survey by May 5, 2021.

*The Board will issue 4 hours of Category 1 Distance Continuing Education for fully completed surveys only. Credits will be issued within 4-6 weeks after the survey closes. You will be asked to submit your name, license number, and a current email address at the end of the survey so that the Board can issue your credits. The information you provide here will be used only to issue your credits and will not be linked to your survey responses. 

We welcome your feedback and appreciate your time!

Thank you!

The California Acupuncture Board
