Approximately 30 per cent of the undergraduate program is devoted to gaining clinical experience in preparation for becoming a qualified traditional Chinese medicine practitioner. This subject continues your clinical placement learning (Module 1) and extends your acupuncture theory and practice skills (Module 2):

  • Module 1 – Clinical Assistant Level 5
    • Clinical training and clinical placement hours occur in all stages of the Chinese medicine program. Module 1 builds on the first two years of theoretical, practical and clinical training to acquaint students with the competencies, skills and duties required by the final year student–practitioner interns working in the UTS Chinese medicine outpatient clinics.
  • Module 2 – Acupuncture Microsystems and Advanced Treatment Techniques
    • Students learn special areas of acupuncture microsystems and advanced treatment techniques which have a wide range of applications in acupuncture general practice. In the practicum workshop classes students practise the theoretical information discussed in the lectures.
