President's Message

Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. In the several millennia history of Chinese medicine, this is the blink of an eye, but for Chinese medicine in Canada, this is a milestone.

The profession has changed in these past 25 years as well, and we have been at the leading edge of this change. ACATCM has persistently led in advancing the acupuncture and Chinese medicine profession, increasing community awareness, and supporting the next generation of practitioners, as well, we are the only education and research-based acupuncture institution in Canada.

We are delighted to have you consider ACATCM as a prospective college. As a leader in Chinese Medicine, we have had the honour of providing quality programs that give our students the foundation for educational success- no matter if you are just finishing high school, continuing in your education, or looking for a career change.  

Our team of instructors at ACATCM are experts in the field of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, holding multi-disciplines in other fields of healthcare. Students get to enjoy a diverse learning experience due to the dynamic learning model at ACATCM giving you the full spectrum of learning achievement.  

I would like to thank everyone who has helped the evolution of our profession and the growth of ACATCM. We would not be where we are without you. To those of you considering a career in Chinese medicine – there has never been a better time to join the profession. We look forward to having you as a part of our diverse, thriving, positive community, and are excited to meet you.
