CVM Veterinary Acupuncture
Designed for College of Veterinary Medicine students, participants learn about veterinary acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) during a 1-week workshop in Guangzhou, China. Students will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
This one-week program will introduce veterinary students the basics of traditional Chinese Medicine in China in a setting where they can experience Chinese traditions. They will be taught in an international classroom (in English). The course will include an overview of TCVM history, terminology, theory, and practical applications using dogs or horses (the lectures are combined and the labs are separate; students choose one option only). Students will also see traditional Chinese medicine practiced on humans. Students will be able to take these skills and start practicing acupuncture and to advanced their studies toward becoming certified in acupuncture.
The Acupuncture CE Course is equivalent to session 1 and 2 of the Basic Acupuncture course for Small Animal or Equine. This CE course counts as both the first and second session of the basic CE course and is held in China. The remaining sessions may be taken through any Chi campus.
