The CAM bylaw lists acupuncture as a method of treatment suitable for practise in Serbia (245).
According to the bylaw, acupuncture can be practised only by health workers, i.e. physicians, stomatologists, pharmacists, nurses and health/medical technicians like physiotherapists (246).
All regulated practitioners are allowed to practise after relevant CAM education. Today only medical doctors are practising acupuncture (246).
The Section of acupuncture of Serbian Physicians’ Association organizes acupuncture education for medical doctors (246).
