Applications Are Now Open

The Alberta College of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACATCM) is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Summer and Fall semesters of 2024! This is your opportunity to embark on a transformative educational journey in the fields of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), renowned for their holistic approach to health and wellness.

At ACATCM, we offer a comprehensive curriculum that integrates the rich traditions of TCM with modern scientific research and clinical practice. Our programs are designed to provide students with a deep understanding of the theory and application of acupuncture and TCM, preparing them for successful careers as skilled practitioners. Whether you are seeking to change careers, enhance your current practice, or pursue your passion for holistic health, ACATCM provides a supportive and vibrant learning environment to achieve your goals.

Why ACATCM Stands Out:

  • Unrivaled Excellence and Leadership: The Alberta College of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACATCM) stands as the pinnacle of acupuncture and TCM education in Canada, renowned for its vibrant community of scholars, practitioners, and the distinguished career of our founder, Dr. Benny Xu. Under his visionary leadership, complemented by the deep expertise of our faculty, ACATCM offers an environment where students are fully supported on their journey to professional excellence. Our commitment to high academic standards is evident in our graduates’ consistent success. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for the complexities of modern healthcare, ensuring they emerge as competent, compassionate practitioners.
  • Innovation and Research at the Forefront: ACATCM sets itself apart as the only institution in Canada dedicated exclusively to acupuncture and TCM with its own research division. Our pioneering partnerships with the Alberta government and the University of Calgary have led to the development of cutting-edge treatments that blend the best of Western and Eastern medicine. This innovative approach ensures our students are leaders in the field of integrative healthcare, prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities of modern medical practice.
  • Prestige Through Leadership and Achievement: Central to ACATCM’s esteemed reputation is Dr. Benny Xu, whose leadership has propelled the college to the forefront of the health and education sectors. Dr. Xu’s contributions to the advancement of acupuncture and TCM have garnered national acclaim and recognition, including the prestigious Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal in 2022. This honor, celebrating the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, is a testament to Dr. Xu’s significant impact on healthcare in Alberta and his pivotal role in promoting the understanding and practice of acupuncture and TCM throughout Canada.
  • Personalized Mentorship: With small class sizes and a focus on personalized attention, students benefit from direct mentorship from our team of expert practitioners. This hands-on training and research opportunity is unmatched, providing the practical skills and knowledge needed to excel.
  • Inclusive and Supportive Culture: At ACATCM, we’re dedicated to fostering an environment that supports success at every level. Our faculty members are not just educators but advocates for our students, offering the guidance and resources necessary to thrive.
