In the last year of training students will learn all it takes to be a fully qualified and knowledgeable practitioner, capable of taking on nearly any patient. Students will greatly expand their understanding of Chinese Medicine Philosophies allowing them to put the final pieces to the puzzle.
In Year three students will be learning all about male and female conditions. By learning these subjects, all that students have learned in years two and three will become much clearer and understandable. A clearly understanding of Chinese Medicine and its herb uses will also be covered, to give students a brief understanding of its place in Chinese Medicine Philosophy.
In particular there will be an emphasis on diagnosis of patients through observation of their mannerism, behaviours and personality and what this means in terms of which elements and organs are not working properly.
Some of the subjects covered include:
Q1. When I start my third year, do I have to renew my Acupuncture student insurance?For students who do not have their own Acupuncture practitioners insurance upon starting their third year, the OICCT will cover the cost of renewing their student insurance. If students have up to date practitioners insurance this will cover their studies while attending lectures as long as it is valid.
Q2. I want to attend the third year at the OICCT, but I have not attended Years ONE and TWO. Am I able to enrol?No. The minimum requirement for those wishing to enrol onto Year THREE is to have attended and completed Year TWO.
Q3. What if I miss or cannot attend a weekend?Students who have to put a hold on their studies for whatever reason may recommence their training in another academic year. However, to recommence their training at the same point they left, students must have paid their entire original course fee in full.
Q4. When can I start practicing the new conditions I have learnt in my practice?As students progress in their training, the OICCT will give written authorisation to students it feels are now ready to practice what they have learned in their lectures in their own practice.
Q5. What qualification will I receive when I finish my third year?Students will receive a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine on the completion of the Year THREE.
