PCU Welcomes You
MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Growing interest in natural health and longevity has raised public awareness of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), herbal medical remedies and other forms of alternative therapies. An increasing number of practitioners now refer patients to holistic medicine clinics for supplementary therapies that support the healing process. Many public medical service plans and extended health benefits programs now recognize the advantage of these treatments and offer to cover the expense of acupuncture treatments or massage therapy sessions.
This has driven the demand for qualified practitioners who are thoroughly trained in TCM theory and techniques, as well as, the fundamentals of Western Medical Science. At PCU College of Holistic Medicine, we see the potential in this market and as a result we are providing a superior education and clinical preparation for all students. By adopting the holistic approach to medicine, practitioners learn to specialize in TCM and be well-rounded healthcare providers.
Since opening in 2002, PCU College has provided students with the highest quality of education that goes beyond the classroom to the clinic, as well as, giving the students the opportunity to attend lectures and seminars by leading industry professionals. Our internationally diverse faculty members who have been chosen for their medical expertise, clinical experience and exceptional instructional abilities provide our students with the latest information and insight into what is expected by future patients. In this short time, the college has grown considerably to become one of the leading clinical training institutions for Traditional Chinese Medicine in Canada. This growth is in large part due to the success of our graduates who have gone to practice TCM, Acupuncture, Tuina, Spa and Esthetics services in clinics or private practice, both domestically and internationally.
As you browse through this brochure, you will notice that the range of our curriculum is almost as broad as the field in alternative health care. We will be able to help you on the path to an alternative health care career that puts you in a position to assist others to achieve a state of health and well-being.
Thank you for your interest in PCU College of Holistic Medicine.
