NYCTCM Acupuncture School New York

NYCTCM Acupuncture School New York

Now is a good time to consider a professional career in Chinese Medicine —Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology — since these centuries-old healing arts continue to gain acceptance among American health practitioners and patients. The New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine is New York’s premier institution of authentic Chinese Medicine. NYCTCM teaches Traditional Chinese Medicine much as it is taught in China, while helping students relate this approach to the practice of Western Medicine in the U.S.

NYCTCM is fully accredited and our programs have been shown to thoroughly prepare our students for the NCCAOM national certification examination in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. NYCTCM accepts new and transfer students at the beginning of each trimester, in January, April and September. Prospective students must have at least 60 college credits and proficiency in English before applying. Please visit the NYCTCM website for complete information about our programs.

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.

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. (Mineola is 1/2 hour by LIRR from Penn Station).

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 5 days per week, and a limited number of classes are offered there on weekday evenings.

Please see our website for a schedule of Open Houses. Saturday Open House sessions include an opportunity at the end of the session to sit in on classes and receive a complementary treatment in the NYCTCM Teaching Clinic.

Or you may arrange to visit NYCTCM as a guest student on another day (Saturday is the best day) — attend classes, meet with faculty and students, and speak with our Admissions and Financial Aid staff.
