    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture is a new par­a­digm of acupunc­ture in the west, estab­lished and devel­oped by west­ern physi­cians about sixty years ago in Europe, spread­ing later over the whole world by inte­gra­tion into the med­ical practice.
    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture is imple­ment­ing stan­dards of mod­ern west­ern med­i­cine in the­ory, prac­tice and research.
    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture is based on tra­di­tional roots, in respect, crit­i­cal and con­struc­tive evaluation.
    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture is fos­ter­ing dual train­ing of physi­cians in west­ern med­i­cine and acupuncture.
    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture is apply­ing the con­cept of evidence-​based med­i­cine con­sid­er­ing aspects of effi­cacy, safety and cost effectiveness.
    • Med­ical Acupunc­ture pro­motes the con­cept of evidence-​based med­i­cine regard­ing to effi­cacy, safety and cost effec­tive­ness applied to acupunc­ture and related techniques
