Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine
The Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine provides students with a comprehensive foundation in the theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine including acupuncture, herbal medicine, biomedical sciences, and the role of a professional Chinese medicine practitioner in the Australian healthcare system.
The broad educational base of the degree and the development of analytical skills offered within it will equip graduates to be life-long learners and will encourage them to develop a wider professional role in healthcare.
This course is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework and is approved by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in all three divisions of registration: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Chinese Herbal Dispensing.
