About our senior intern student practitioners:
Taking clinical practice is part of our 3-year acupuncture program, 4-year Traditional Chinese Medicine program or 5-year Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine program. Generally speaking, after one and half years of classroom education, students are ready to take clinical practice.
A student should meet the requirements of the CTCMA to get student registration issued by CTCMA, and the student’s practice is supervised by Registered Acupuncturists, TCMPs and Doctors of TCM.
Since 2000, our senior intern students have performed several thousands of treatments on patients. Most patients feel satisfied with the treatments: we have had many improvements in patient condition, and we have no record of complaint from any patient relating to the student intern’s practice.
We provide acupuncture treatment and herbal medicine treatment, including:
*Electric heat lamp therapy
*Herbal tea and formulas.
The treatment may be performed by our doctors or senior intern students.
