Diploma Program

About the Program

This program qualifies graduates of the Acupuncture & Moxbustion Program to become a Registered TCM Practitioner (R.TCMP). For students who have previously completed the Acupuncture & Moxibustion Program, we offer a post-graduate stream of the TCMP program which can be completed in just 1 year studying full time (including a summer term). Otherwise, the regular TCMP diploma can be achieved in 3 years of full-time studies. In addition to teaching acupuncture and moxibustion, the program integrates extensive herbology coursework and covers the main specialties of Chinese medicine, such as internal and external medicine, gynaecology and paediatrics. Interested students can also take both the Acu and PG-TCMP program simulteanously in a 3 Year TCMP Program.
