Mornings are Chinese Herbal and TCM Diagnosis

Afternoons are All Types of Acupuncture

This two year degree level course with and optional 3rd year clinical attachment and Tuina Training, is a practical professional training course to enable students to achieve high standards of competence, safety and confidence as practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

There is a further option to do this course as an Acupuncture and TCM Diagnosis course without Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Students will be applying TCM diagnosis and practising on each other under supervision in a clinical environment from their very first lesson as well as being taught the theoretical understanding of what they are learning because TCM is a practical subject and is best learnt in a practical way.

There are 10 weekend modules (20 contact days) in the first year and the same in the second year. Students can begin the course on any module and provided that all 10 (2 day) modules are successfully completed they can then proceed to the second year which has a similar continual arrangement.

The ‘Ethos of the College’ is to ‘fit treatments to patients’ rather than ‘patients to treatments’ thus depending on Traditional TCM diagnostic skills to make patient assessments rather than follow theories which may pre anticipate a patients condition. Acurate assessment is the key to successful and effective treatment, this is confirmed through Pulse, Face, Tongue, Eye and other Traditional Chinese methods of examination with targeted questioning about the patients condition and medical history.

The Clinical training aspects of the course are taught by Paul Brecher BA FAcS MPCHM Principal of The College of Chinese Medicine on Wednesdays and by Paul Robin Head TCM at The College of Chinese medicine and Chairman of the Acupuncture Society on Thursdays.

The weekend 1st and 2nd year classes in Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Diagnosis are run by Paul Robin

This object of this course is to achieve standards set out by the Acupuncture Society Accreditation process and is a professional training diploma course in Chinese acupuncture, herbal medicine and diagnosis, the emphasis is on achieving set standards of practical and clinical training. Students will be treating each other during the modules and through clinical experience combined with TCM theory to learn practical clinical skills in there correct setting.

The course will cover Chinese anatomy, meridians and points, pathology, pulse reading and analysis, tongue, face, Chinese Sclerology and skin diagnosis, TCM traditional, Auricular, Orthopaedic, Para spinal, Hand and Abdominal Microsystems,  and Cosmetic Acupuncture, knowledge of around 200 herbal medicines and their appropriate use in clinical practice. Students will be tested on the contents of each module.

This course is taught in the same practical way that a practitioner would treat their patients, this is the way masters taught students in china through the centuries.

We hear the patient describe their symptoms and explain any western medical diagnosis they may have been given, then we use traditional Chinese diagnostic methods to identify signs and formulate acupuncture and herbal formulas appropriate to the condition, either herbs, acupuncture or both.

The whole process is discussed in depth during the session.

Treatment formulations take into account what the patient has told the practitioner and what the practitioner has discovered through TCM diagnosis. By being taught how to incorporate all this information together the student can see the big picture from the onset.

There are 20 Lessons grouped together into 10 modules in each of the first and second years. The lectures are on one Monday and Tuesday per month, each lesson lasts 6 hours, from 9 am till 4 pm with a one hour break for lunch.
