Program Description:

The Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM) is a comprehensive program designed to lead students to the level of knowledge and clinical proficiency necessary to become a successful independent health care provider-whether as an individual practitioner or as part of an integrative medicine team.

ACTCM students learn how to apply ancient wisdom to modern healthcare practices. Chinese Medicine is a medical system that has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. It is based on the belief that Qi (the body's vital energy) flows along meridians (channels) in the body and keeps a person's physical, spiritual, emotional and mental health in balance.

Traditional Chinese Medicine includes acupuncture, diet, herbal therapy, meditation, massage
and physical exercise.
