Our teachers

We have a selected team of teaching staff with rich clinical experience and a high reputation in Chinese medicine education; many of whom work directly with ATCM and have taught TCM to degree level in Lincoln, London & Middlesex Universities. All of our in-house lecturers speak fluent English. We often have guest lecturers from all over the world and translators will be present if needed. We also host CPD courses in Mandarin Chinese (普通话)for Chinese speaking students.

Our approach is both innovative and practical to ensure students are exposed to as much experience as possible. Programmes involve regular lectures, discussions, seminars, workshops, supervisions, clinical observations, personal tutorials, case studies, apprenticeships and networking.

Our programmes are flexible and accessible to all practitioners and students or other healthcare professionals who are already practising or studying acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
