RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2120Goal: $3500

American University of Complementary Medicine is an unaccredited school in Beverly Hills, California that teaches homeopathy, Ayurvedic medicine, Asian body work and traditional Chinese medicine.

Legal status[edit]

AUCM is a legal degree giving-body and students may be able to practice alternative medicine under strict guidelines within the state of California.[1] However because of not being accredited, an employer may not accept their credentials. Most health insurance plans do not cover alternative medicine. In almost every state in order to even practice the programs mentioned someone must hold an M.D/D.O. or D.C. degree as well as being licensed and bonded by the state.

Degree programs[edit]


  • Associates of Arts in Asian Body Work



  • Masters of Science in Nutritional Medicine



There is an actual campus and an actual teaching staff, however most of the staff got their medical degrees outside of the United States and are not allowed to practice medicine in the United States.
