This year is an exciting time for the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine; it marks our 20th anniversary! Over these last 20 years a lot has changed. Our profession has grown in Alberta. We have seen more acceptance and acknowledgement of the role that Traditional Chinese Medicine can play in healthcare, both on the part of government and the general public. In fact, there has never been a better time to join our profession.
While much has changed over the years, our mission at the ACATCM remains the same: to provide the highest quality education in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and to help our students become competent, successful health care professionals.
Our faculty and staff come from diverse backgrounds bring with them a wealth of experience. We are passionate about quality and are consistently striving for excellence in all aspects of our operation. Also, our exclusive relationships with the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and Yunnan University of Chinese Medicine, and our status with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®) in USA provide many options for a broader educational experiences.
I look forward to welcoming you to join our ACATCM family and help us to carry on our tradition of excellence!
