The College of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine London
Professional Training, CPD & Diploma Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine Courses
The College of Chinese Medicine was founded in 1992
We run Professional, Undergraduate, Postgraduate, CPD and Diploma Courses in Acupuncture & Chinese Medicines.
The College was established to promote the development and education of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies in the United Kingdom, and to preserve and further develop its professional standing and integration into modern health care practice.
The College is dedicated to the education of high calibre Acupuncture & TCM professionals who are proficient in modern western medical sciences as well as traditional Chinese theory.
Classes are small and taught by an expert team of acupuncture practitioners, education and clinical specialists. Emphasis is firmly placed on patient centred education based in clinical practice, where theoretical understanding, practical skills and attitudinal development underpin every aspect of professional learning and teaching.
With recent developments in UK acupuncture legislation in mind, tcm & acupuncture courses are geared towards the realities of modern health care provision, and aim to provide students with the skills needed to pursue a successful career in a variety of private or NHS settings, and the knowledge and skills to communicate with patients, GPs, and other health care professionals with wisdom, confidence and authority.
The College is acutely aware that the continued integration of acupuncture and TCM into mainstream UK health care depends greatly on the continued validation of acupunctures effectiveness as a medical intervention.
It is committed to fostering a research environment in which students and staff can carry out quality research programs that will contribute towards the growing body of work carried out by other UK acupuncture institutions.
It will particularly encourage research into acupunctures medical and cost effectiveness for medical conditions commonly and regularly seen in modern NHS practice, in order to produce quality data that contribute towards the adoption of acupuncture services or departments across the mainstream of UK health care providers.
We offer degree level and applied professional training Diploma’s and CPD Certificates, our courses are accredited by the Acupuncture Society who are active members of the Acupuncture Stakeholder Group (ASG), and the Microsystems Acupuncture Regulatory Working Group (MARWG).
