Research

At ACATCM we are committed to conducting meaningful research that has a profound impact on individuals while paving advancements in traditional Chinese medicine. We believe the pursuit and power of research are pivotal to learning about and advancing TCM. Research helps us benefit the lives of many through a network of partnerships and collaborations. This role is critical as it aids the development of the traditional Chinese medicine profession- allowing a greater reach to help individual well-being and community. 


The Alberta College of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine is collaborating with the University of Calgary on the Complementary Health Integration Project (C.H.I.P.) with the pursuit of enhancing mental health, pain, and addiction support for Albertans during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.

C.H.I.P. is a community-based research project focusing on helping Covid-19 related mental health, pain, and addiction issues. This one-of-a-kind study is open to anyone under the age of 24 or over the age of 55; and will be complimentary to all qualified participants. 

The Covid-19 pandemic brought challenges to people on many fronts, health is one of them. At ACATAM, we are committed to broadening our health services and enhancing mental health, pain, and addiction support for Albertans during and after this unprecedented time.
