Where Wound Healing Begins.

The ACHM is a professional society dedicated to appropriate utilization, standards of care, education, training, certification, and recognition of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a distinct medical specialty.

The American College of Hyperbaric Medicine was founded in 1983 in support of clinicians practicing hyperbaric medicine who recognized the importance of therapeutic oxygen in clinical applications, especially wound management.



The ACHM has worked to develop an image of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a distinct medical specialty, often requiring full time practice.

The ACHM has served as a primary educational resource for providers practicing hyperbaric and wound medicine and has established training criteria and certification pathways for clinicians.


We are pleased to offer many HBOT educational opportunities. These courses have been approved by our Education Committee using our ACHM Education Approval Process.

ACHM Members receive a discount on all courses we have endorsed, which all offer CME/CEU credit. A pathway to certification is also available.


Membership to the ACHM is for those in the medical community specializing in wound care or hyperbaric medicine in the United States.

The ACHM strives to build upon the work of its members to improve the quality, practice, and expand the scope of hyperbaric medicine. We are proud to provide an international support network hyperbaric community.
