What you’ll learn
The Canadian Association of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a non-governmental organization voluntarily initiated and formed through friendly consultations by Canadian practitioners of acupuncture and moxibustion of traditional Chinese medicine, professional colleges of acupuncture and moxibustion of traditional Chinese medicine, and people of insight in the field of Chinese medicine. The main work will focus on utilizing the advantages of the platform of the Canadian TCM Acupuncture Alliance to comprehensively promote TCM culture and TCM characteristics, so that the unique medical rehabilitation model and value of TCM can be understood and accepted by the whole society. Jointly carry out various exchange activities and meetings with the professional colleges of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture in the alliance; integrate and utilize various channels and resources to provide members with resource service systems, expert service systems, and alliance member self-service systems. The colleges and universities specialized in acupuncture and moxibustion of traditional Chinese medicine in the alliance will improve the quality and academic level of practitioners in the acupuncture and moxibustion industry of traditional Chinese medicine by formulating training plans, training courses, and distance education. Promote continuing clinical education for Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists. Actively participate in the professional consulting work and legislative consulting work of the Provincial Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and the professional consulting work related to the reform of professional degree education certification of Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Moxibustion and the joint examination of practicing qualifications. The alliance focuses on traditional Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists serving community medical care, saving the Canadian government’s huge expenditure on regular hospitals.
