Approximately 30 per cent of the undergraduate training program is devoted to gaining clinical experience in preparation for becoming a qualified traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioner. The subject is split into two modules:

  • Module 1 builds on previous clinical training subjects and acquaints students with the skills and duties required by a 'student practitioner' working in the University's outpatient clinics. Students must satisfactorily complete requisite clinical hours.
  • Module 2 introduces basic theoretical constructs for the application of various acupuncture techniques. Practical needling experience is introduced within the workshops. Participation in needling workshops is compulsory. Students are also introduced to the full set of Jing Luo pathways.
