PCU College's Acupuncture program is a condensed version of four-year acupuncture programs offered at TCM universities in China. The unique program trains students in the ancient art of acupuncture and gives them a solid foundation in the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Along with TCM subjects, such as the philosophy, meridians and acupoints, students learn about physiology, anatomy, microbiology and Western Medical diagnosis. The Acupuncture program is a continuation of the foundation built from the Tuina/Anmo (Chinese Massage) program.
Students are able to observe the operations of a TCM clinic through their supervised Clinical Placements. They gain hands on experience in clinical skills such as interviewing patients, diagnosis, treatment and formulating herbal prescriptions.
