The study time duration is flexible for you. It could be a few weeks or a few months based upon your time schedule. It means we offer corresponding study program for your group to meet your personal demand. This way could guarantee that everybody could benefit sufficiently. This is the pure English study program in China covering comprehensive TCM subjects for international students and western licensed doctors.
In a common condition, we always arrange two hours for theory introduction in the morning, two hours for clinical practice in the afternoon (even though actually most students studied here much longer everyday for free). Five days per week. Usually, 50% classes for acupuncture and tuina, 30% basic theories and diagnostics, 20% herbs and herbal treatment.
From August 2012, we also offer some 2-weeks-simple-study-programs including foot massage, TCM cosmetics, acupuncture weight-reducing, scrapping (guasha), or cupping.
Please feel free to let us know your demand and time schedule so that we could make special arrangement for you. Please contact us now before attending our program.
Why do international students and licensed western doctors like to attend our short term study program?
The answer is that on the one hand, there is no any pure English study program in China covering the comprehensive TCM courses like basic theory, diagnostics, acupuncture, tuina, herbs, prescription, even though there are English study programs in China for the subject of manipulation of acupuncture, which might cause a partial understanding to TCM. On the other hand, after attending our short term study program, you will be offered a very accurate understanding to the basic knowledge of TCM. This experience will help you to continue and deepen the study of TCM very smoothly. For example, many TCM students in the USA and UK could not successfully complete the two or three years study program there, because they find TCM is very hard to understand and have to give up the study. The third, since in China the TCM degree study program (bachelor's degree) for the international students spend five years and is taught in Chinese language, this is a hard choice for most international TCM students.
So in general, the purpose of our short term training program is to offer you very good basic TCM knowledge and to improve your accurate and clear understanding to TCM knowledge.
The short term training classes are taught in pure English. The courses in our hospital include acupuncture, moxibustion, basic theory of TCM, diagnostics, materia medica, prescription, massage (Tui Na), Qigong, internal medicine, gynaecology, paediatrics, dermatology, dietary therapy, etc.
Many friends and students in the world are interested in Chinese medicine now, but unfortunately, their time schedules or financial budgets have prevented them from coming here to learn TCM for a number of years or months. Therefore we encourage you to learn by yourself at home. We offer you English textbooks, A01 to A14 published by Shanghai TCM University Press. If there is any puzzle when you learn these books, you can consult with our teachers. After you finish all the books, you could apply to take our distant test, then we will give you a certificate after you pass the test. If you wish to attend our distant program, the cost for the distant program is $980.00, including the textbooks fee, consulting fee, test fee and certificate fee. Order Here Now.
Also you can come to our hospital to attend the short term training program to improve both your theoretical and clinical knowledge if you have time after you finish studying these books.
Hope more people in the world to know more about traditional Chinese medicine.
