Acupuncture Training 2020 at the ICTCM – Coronavirus update


In spite of the current pandemic of Coronavirus, the Irish College of Traditional Chinese Medicine are happy to report that we are continuing to provide teaching to the students on our Acupuncture and TCM programmes.

Please note that it is now too late to apply for the next Acupuncture TCM Training course which is starting  in early October 2020, as usual.

Of course, Covid-19 has meant that we have to do some things differently.

For more than 35 years  we have run our successful  3 year part time Professional Acupuncture  TCM Training face-to-face. So, it has been an interesting challenge to enable our current students to continue uninterrupted with their studies during these difficult times of social distancing. We have introduced much more online and video conferencing learning. And our staff and students have risen to the challenge.

When the 2020 intake begins in early October, the Teaching weekends for the period October 2020 to January 2021 will all be online. Regarding later in 2021, much will obviously depend on whether the spread of the Coronavirus is under control and whether it is allowed to meet in groups.

Looking forwards, once the pandemic is over, we will introduce more Distanced Learning sessions into our normal teaching schedule. This will mean that students, who normally come into the college for 2 full days every 4 weeks (approximately), will not have to come to Dublin in person quite so often.

Information about this will be made available on the website in the coming months.
