Soon our Licentiate in TCM 2018 graduates will be receiving their graduation certificates and we will be turning our attention to further enhancing and developing our Professional Acupuncture TCM training course which has been running successfully in our College in Dublin for more than 35 years.
It is designed for adults wishing to work in a caring profession, whatever their current career, profession or experience.
In only 3 years of part time study we provide theoretical and clinical training to a high standard which will enable our graduates to confidently and professionally set up in practice within the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine in any part of Ireland and/or the UK.
During our recent visit to Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macao we were delighted to meet old friends in the TCM and Qigong field, and to make new ones.
At a conference on Health and Longevity the Irish College of TCM’s Director Tom Shanahan received a special award for presenting an outstanding academic paper.

Professor Song Xinhong was one of the event organisers for this very successful international conference.
The Irish College of TCM (ICTCM) first visited Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine in 1999. We have returned to our sister University in Guangzhou, with whom we have had a formal Affiliation since 2002, almost every year since then.
Many ICTCM graduates have attended month-long specialist post-graduate courses. The photo above is from the first Medical Qigong visit in 2000 and the photo below shows the 2002 group.
Later this month ICTCM staff will be meeting University officials in Guangzhou to discuss possible advances in the cooperation between the two TCM teaching institutes.
Soon another group of students who are training to be Acupuncture professionals at the Irish College of TCM in Dublin will be Graduating from the Lic.TCM course. Second year students, such as those shown here learning to locate Acupuncture Points on the back, will be going into the Teaching Clinic to do their practical training.
Would you like to be one of the new first year students studying to change career and become an Acupuncture TCM practitioner?
It takes a little under 3 academic years of exciting, sometime challenging and always interesting part time study.
We are now accepting applications for the October 2018 start date. The Prospectus Pack is available online at.www.ictcm.ie.
