Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM)
Applicants must show strong motivation and possess the maturity, desire, and commitment necessary to serve in the healing arts.
The University encourages enrollment from qualified Western health-care professionals who wish to incorporate the theories, methods and techniques of Chinese medicine into their own practices. The interaction of these professionals with the TCM faculty and students is an important aspect of the education and training at UEWM. The University also encourages practitioners who received their education in Chinese medicine abroad and are now residing in the United States to continue their education at the University, with the objective of meeting educational requirements to become a state-licensed acupuncturist.
Applicants must have completed at least two years of baccalaureate-level education, comprising 60 semester units (90 quarter units), at an institution accredited by the U.S. Secretary of Education or at an approved foreign university in order to qualify for admission to UEWM. A minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 is also required. A medical background is not necessary for admission, but is helpful.
