All the staff at the ICTCM are very happy to welcome in the 2021 New Year. We send good wishes for a healthy year ahead to all our students, friends and colleagues. The College Directors thank all the staff and students for their optimistic, practical and flexible approach to the educational changes that they are experiencing due to Coronavirus.
A brief update on changes to our Acupuncture Training teaching and learning protocols is provided here.
Due to Coronavirus, our first and second year students are currently studying with us via Zoom. All aspects of the curriculum are being provided in the normal way – just “at a distance.” Examinations and assessment procedures have been altered to fit the new ways of teaching and learning.
The practical clinical training for the Third Year students has had to be deferred until we can meet clients face to face in the Teaching Clinic. These students have now nearly completed all the theoretical aspects of the Clinical year, including project work, and are attending, by invitation, some additional teaching sessions to keep themselves up to date with all the theory and point location work. The practical Teaching Clinic will only start when it is safe to do so.
Additionally, our Qigong teachers are currently designing Zoom-based training in Health Promoting Qigong for the Spring.
