The Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TSTCM) is one of Ontario's leading Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) institutions. We are dedicated to providing first-rate training in Chinese acupuncture, herbal medicine and tuina massage. TSTCM offers comprehensive programs ranging from certificate programs for people who have a strong interest in Chinese medicine to professional diploma programs for serious students who plan on building a career around TCM.
Students enrolled in the Acupuncture Diploma Program, TCM Practitioner Diploma Program and Advanced TCM Diploma Program may be eligible, if qualified, for loans, grants, or awards granted under the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).
When it comes to excellence in education, TSTCM has a proven track-record. Founded in 1995 by Mary Xiumei Wu, one of Canada’s foremost experts on Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, the school has spent the last 21 years refining its curriculum and training methods to ensure that graduates are prepared to meet the challenges of CTCMA certification in BC and Pan-Canadian examinations (starting in 2013) in Canada, and NCCAOM examinations in the United States. Since 2001 graduates of TSTCM have taken NCCAOM exams in the U.S and CTCMA exams in BC with high pass-rate. In Ontario, the TCM profession has been regulated since April 1, 2013 and College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO) is established under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Act, 2006. We are taking the necessary steps to ensure that our students will experience the same level of success with Pan-Canadian examinations and CTCMPAO registration that they have had in other jurisdictions. Up to 2016 more than 50 percent of newly licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners (R.TCMP) in Ontario received their training from Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
With our proven training methods, graduates have all the tools they need to build rewarding and successful careers practicing TCM. Our graduates have attained a reputation for excellence in the field of alternative health care and are highly sought-after by wellness and medical clinics. Many have gone on to open their own successful practices. Read More...
TSTCM offers classes with flexible schedules and modularized programs, catering to the needs of students. Classes are offered during the daytime, evenings, and on weekends. Students can study one modality at a time in a modular fashion while working toward the completion of one of the comprehensive diploma programs.
Our approach to in-class teaching and clinical training is innovative and highly effective. Classes are delivered within a supportive and inspiring environment, and encompass traditional as well as modern approaches to TCM education. The campus also includes an on-site teaching clinic to serve the local community, where upper-year students diagnose patients, formulate treatment plans, and deliver acupuncture, herbal medicine, and tuina treatments under the supervision of experienced TCM experts.
We have assembled an expert faculty with many years of experience teaching and practicing Chinese Medicine in China and North America. Each and every one of our instructors is an outstanding individual who is carefully selected for his or her depth of knowledge and passion for teaching. Read More...
