Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine offers a world-class education, modern research opportunities and premier clinical services.
Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine is dedicated to training a new generation of practitioners in the 2,500-year-old artistry and science of traditional Chinese medicine. We strive to introduce students to the most advanced theoretical and practical traditional Chinese medicine training available in North America. We make every effort to promote and advance public understanding and knowledge of Chinese medicine in our communities. At Ontario College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we endeavour to guide our students on a journey toward fulfilling both personal and professional dreams, as they become dedicated leaders and practitioners in the field of medicine.
The Diploma of Acupuncture and the Diploma of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner programs at OCTCM are designed to meet and exceed the educational requirements of CTCMPAO towards registered acupuncturist (R.Ac) and registered traditional Chinese medicine practitioner (R.TCMP) certifications. We prepare our graduates to attend the national examinations held by CARB-TCMPA.
Maryam Kashefi graduated in 2008 from our Acupuncture Diploma program with the highest honours. Currently, she is a registered acupuncturist (R.Ac) with The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario. She has since started her own clinic called Horizon Wellness Clinic where she practices acupuncture.
Prof. Chow obtained his Ph.D degree in traditional Chinese medicine from Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine. The students at OCTCM benefit from Chow’s incredible ability to demonstrate the herbal principles and guidance throughout their herbal clinical internships. Chow specializes in the study of gynacology, pediatrics, Chinese herbs, and acupuncture.
