Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine Overview

“A superior doctor is able to gather all techniques and use them either together or separately”
-The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine

The Master’s Program in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MS-TCM) offers comprehensive training in Chinese Herbal Medicine and acupuncture to prepare graduates to provide their patients the full range of the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The program expands upon the curriculum offered in the Masters in Acupuncture by adding training in herb theory, dispensary practice and clinical herbal training.

Program Details

The Master’s in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MS-TCM) is a 4 year, 145.5 credit, 3395 hour program.

For those who pursue this program, in the first year you will study basic theory, acupuncture concepts and biomedicine.

In the second year you will gradually begin your herbal studies. You will begin a survey of the traditional Chinese Materia Medica, which encompasses over 300 individual herbs.

You will finish your education with classes in clinical applications of Chinese medicine including dietetics, acupuncture/moxibustion and herbal formulae and a herbal clinic concentration in the fourth and final year.
