Acupuncture is legally recognized as a CAM therapy in the group “alternative therapies” in the law on CAM 118/2007 (238).

Only medical doctors, dentists and pharmacists with approved additional qualification are allowed to practise acupuncture in Romania (239). A specialized committee for acupuncture regulates the profession (NATL) (239).

In medical schools or faculties of pharmacy students can take optional courses in
acupuncture (29). There is a professional society of acupuncture that has annual national congresses. There is a National Institute of research in CAM in Bucharest; its present director is also the president of the Romanian association of Acupuncturists (237).

There is no professorial chair for CAM therapy in Romania, but there are clinics of
acupuncture in some faculties of medicine and hospitals of education and research (240).
