New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture School

Authentic Training in 5000-Year-Old Healing Arts

The New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (NYCTCM), New York's premier institution of authentic Chinese Medicine, teaches acupuncture and herbal medicine much as they are taught in China, while helping students relate this approach to the evolving practice of Western Medicine in the U.S. The fully-accredited three-year Masters Program in Acupuncture and four-year Masters Program in Oriental Medicine (acupuncture plus Chinese herbology) prepare students for licensure and professional practice within New York State and throughout the U.S.

Herbal Certificate Program for Acupuncturists

NYCTCM's Herbal Certificate Program trains licensed acupuncturists and graduates of acupuncture programs in the skills needed to add Chinese herbology to their practices.

Small classes with faculty trained in China

The excellent faculty, most of whom were trained in China and have extensive teaching and clinical experience in both China and the U.S., combined with small classes and master-apprentice type teaching relationships in the school’s teaching clinics, mean that this ancient knowledge is carefully transmitted to the students who will make up the next generation of master practitioners.

Flexible scheduling; two convenient locations

NYCTCM offers flexible scheduling with classes mostly on weekends and a friendly family-style atmosphere that encourages stress-free learning. The main campus, located in Mineola, Long Island, is easily accessible by LIRR, bus and auto. For Manhattan-based students, the Manhattan clinic/classroom facility offers the possibility of completion of up to 50% of the program in Manhattan. The Manhattan Clinic is open 4 days per week, and a limited number of classes are offered there on weekday evenings.

NYCTCM accepts new and transfer students at the beginning of each trimester, in September, January and May. Prospective students must have at least 60 college credits and proficiency in English before applying for NYCTCM admission.

NYCTCM is accepting applications for the Winter 2009 trimester.
