Master of Chinese Medicine

Why study the Master of Chinese Medicine?

The Master of Chinese Medicine is designed for Chinese medicine practitioners wishing to strengthen their knowledge and better integrate into the health care system. The course is also designed for graduates with a Chinese Medicine specialisation seeking a pathway to research. 

The course includes two major streams: a clinical stream and a research-training pathway. The clinical stream features a substantial clinical placement in a teaching hospital in China affiliated with the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BJUCM) in addition to clinical specialisation workshops. The research stream includes a significant research project which is supported by the National Institute of Complementary Medicine (NICM).

The course is delivered via structured, intensive workshops and online resources with self-directed learning between workshops to allow maximum flexibility for busy practitioners.
