Traditional Chinese Medicine (M.S.) Degree

Optimizing East Asian Medicine Training through Integration of Traditional and Conventional Medicines

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. Initially you will study basic theory, acupuncture concepts and biomedicine.

In the second year you will gradually begin your herbal studies. We use a unique approach which utilizes common illnesses that you will see in the student clinic and as a practitioner as the basis for the early herb classes. This allows the student to see clinical applications immediately to see the practical applications possible for the TCM practitioner.

This herbal training continues alongside your acupuncture training and acupuncture clinical internship in your third year. In this phase you will explore well over 300 individual herbs and 150 formulas.

You will finish your education with classes in clinical applications of herbal formulae and a herbal clinic concentration in the fourth and final year.

Individual and Flexible

We pride ourselves on a proven track record of working closely with students in a flexible manner. We are committed to creating individual academic plans that accommodate personal needs and goals.

Unique University Environment

Our program provides a unique opportunity to study Chinese Medicine in a multi-purpose University, alongside students pursuing other health profession degrees.  You will work closely with naturopathic, chiropractic and other students and practitioners in a supportive, integrative environment. This experience will be of lasting value in your future professional lives as healthcare providers and healers.
