Facility & Resources
The ACATCM recognizes that access to learning resources and services is vital for student learning and success. The ACATCM on-campus library is more than just books, rather, a resource to help students think critically, evaluate information, and apply practical skills.
Our fully equipped treatment rooms include state-of-the-art moxibustion technology, infrared heat lamps, and high-quality acupuncture needles for day-to-day practice. All treatment rooms are fully equipped to allow residents and students to focus on administering exceptional patient-centred treatments.

The aim of accommodation is to provide an accessible learning environment where all students meet the essential requirements of ACATCM’s programs to study confidently and successfully.
At the ACATCM, “Accommodation” means providing support to access services, courses or programs, making exemptions to any regulations, policies or procedures, standards, or making modifications to physical examinations to the extent necessary to address discrimination against a student based on any protected ground.
Students needing an accommodation request may follow the “Accommodation Request Procedure” found under the “Student Accommodation Policy and Procedure”.
