This subject comprises a series of lectures, workshops and clinical placement.

Lectures and in-class activities cover UTS and CMBA clinical protocols. Topics include treatment modality precautions and contraindications, introductory ethics and law, infection control procedures, and principles of communication. There are a series of workshops that introduce the learner to pulse diagnosis and the treatment modalities of tuina, cupping and gua sha. The workshops are an opportunity to demonstrate information from the lectures (ie practice-based learning).

Clinical placement is undertaken in the UTS CM Outpatient Clinic, primarily in the role of an observer and clinical assistant. Students may be required to assist the practitioner and are eventually expected to undertake clinical assessments of patients and their treatments (under supervision) in the third and fourth year of their studies.
