Practicing The Ancient Art Of Healing
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE PROGRAM LAUNCHES AT HUMBER IN FALL 2016
In September, Humber will be launching its brand new Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioner program — the first of its kind offered at a publicly funded college or university in Ontario.
The program, which will be delivered through Humber’s School of Health Sciences, will train students to practice acupuncture and prescribe herbal remedies according to the principles of TCM. Graduates will be eligible to register with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario as TCM Practitioners.
“We have always aspired to be the leaders in health-care education, and this is our next innovative program to support high quality health-care providers for Ontarians,” said Jason Powell, dean of the School of Health Sciences. “We will also be able to lead the research initiatives in this area and evaluate the efficacy of TCM as a treatment option for medical conditions.”
