The ancient practise of Acupuncture, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, has become a widely used treatment option in Australia.
As a student you will gain an understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy and principles and learn to apply these practically through techniques such as acupuncture, Qi Gong, Chinese herbs, Chinese dietary therapy and massage (Tui Na). Throughout this degree, you will have an extensive opportunity for clinical practise in Endeavour’s on-campus Teaching Clinics.
Endeavour’s Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) is approved by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA). Graduates must apply for registration with CMBA if they wish to use professional titles and practise as a Chinese medicine practitioner in Australia. Information regarding registration standards is available on the CMBA website.
Education, product development and media positions are other popular career outcomes for Acupuncture graduates, in addition to clinical practise.
Endeavour College offers the flexibility to commence a selection of subjects online with an updated digital delivery model. With the support of online tutors and a robust Learning Management System, you can fit study around your work and/or personal commitments.
To support learning, students attend practical classes where they are expected to practise interviewing and case assessment techniques, as well as physical clinical examination and treatment procedures. This is conducted under the supervision of qualified instructors and with respect for privacy, cultural and religious differences. Students gain significant clinical experience at Endeavour's Teaching Clinics under the supervision of qualified practitioners.
In the clinics, students will develop and hone all skills required to run a successful clinic after graduation, including patient assessment and management, patient recruitment and continuity of care, customer service, and dispensary management.
