The expertise of NYCTCM's faculty and their authentic approach to teaching Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the strengths of our school. We have an outstanding TCM faculty averaging more than 20 years of experience in the integrative practice of acupuncture and Chinese herbology in China, with many having taught or done research there. In small classes these master practitioners mentor students in the philosophy and practice of Oriental Medicine.

NYCTCM Oriental Medicine Program
by: Anthony

I entered NYCTCM in 2000 as a non-matriculated student, intending only to get a foundation in Chinese medicine as a first step to studying Tibetan medicine and naturopathy. Suffering an accident to my head and neck shortly after beginning study, I had to take a leave of absence while recuperating and receiving acupuncture treatments at NYCTCM’s clinic. Once recovered, I decided to matriculate at NYCTCM: “The treatments allowed me to appreciate the real power of Chinese medicine and convinced me that TCM was the path of study that I needed to take.”

I graduated from NYCTCM’s acupuncture program in 2005 and began a successful practice specializing in internal and chronic disorders such as stroke, Parkinson’s, and cancer treatment support. I gradually felt a need to supplement my knowledge of acupuncture with that of herbs, so returned to NYCTCM in 2007 to work towards my Oriental Medicine Degree.

Why did I choose NYCTCM? “Several main reasons – first, the teachers have a high level of training and experience gained in both China and the U.S. and this carries over in the interactions of the classroom and the clinic; second, the concentration is on authentic Chinese medicine as opposed to the mixture of techniques taught at most schools; and third, the whole complement of skills is taught – acupuncture, herbs, and tui na massage – which is extremely useful when it comes to building one’s own practice.”

Acupuncture Treatment at NYCTCM
by: Judy

I have been going to the NYCTCM Teaching Clinic in Manhattan for several months for frozen shoulder. My shoulder has improved a lot; it does not hurt when I move it. Dr. Zhao and the students are very friendly, and very knowledgeable. They must be a good school judging by the skill of the students in the clinic.
