About

Humber College’s Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner advanced diploma program is the first and only publicly funded program of its kind offered at a postsecondary institution in Canada.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

 This intensive Humber College ’s Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner advanced diploma program is grounded in the TCM Practitioner skillset which has been approved by all provincial TCM regulators in Canada and provides students with the skills and professional experience necessary to become a TCM Practitioner in Ontario. Through a combination of theoretical course-based instruction, as well as several clinical placements, you will gain a necessary understanding of Traditional Chinese and Western medicine practices. 

 Moreover, graduates of the TCM Practitioner program will be trained to conduct a TCM diagnosis and develop appropriate treatment plans by utilizing their skills in acupuncture, herbal medicine, clinical practice management, professionalism and safety. This program is also committed to the promotion of evidence-informed practice of TCM through scientific research.

Career

The TCM profession is a newly regulated and growing health profession in Ontario and across Canada, and employment futures for graduates are positive. There is a nationwide trend toward alternatives to traditional medicine, and consequently the number of general public members seeking practitioners of natural healing (including Chinese medical practitioners) is increasing.

Graduates will gain the knowledge, skills and judgment necessary to launch a career in professional practice, research and practice management. Possible employment opportunities include work in private TCM and multi-discipline health clinics, and increasingly, conventional medical clinics, long-term care facilities, homes for seniors, rehabilitation clinics, community health clinics and acute care hospitals.
