Students who continue on to Year Two will be introduced to more complicated conditions and gain a higher understanding of Chinese Medicine Philosophy. In the second year, there are approximately 70 conditions that will be covered, each of which will be put into one of three categories: eat well, breathe well and sleep well.
As students attend each weekend, they will be assessed on the conditions covered, and if passed, will be given authorization to begin seeing patients with said condition. This allows students to continue to add to the amount of patients they can take on.
Where in the first year the percentage of practical to theory was around 80/20, in the second year it will be more balanced at 50/50. Students will learn the use of more difficult to needle points, and also start to implement Five Element Acupuncture into their practice. The College will also expand students’ knowledge and use of the Eight Principles of Diagnosis.Some of the subjects covered include
|Breath Well||Eat Well||Sleep Well|
|Common Cold||Digestive Disorders||Fatigue|
|Eczema||Heart Burns||Memory loss|
|Flu||High Blood Pressure||Night Sweat|
|Heavy Chest||Immune Enhancing||Sleep Disorders|
Q1. When I start my second Year, do I have to renew my Acupuncture student insurance?For students who do not have their own Acupuncture practitioners insurance upon starting their second 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 second year at the OICCT, but I was not a student of the first year. Am I able to enrol?Yes, however those who apply must already have a qualification in Acupuncture that meets the standards of the Year ONE course. Also, those who apply must attend an introductory weekend prior to the course commencing so that the OICCT can introduce students to our system. This weekend will cost £300.
Q3. If I cannot finish my course due to unforeseen circumstances, but would like to continue my studies in the future, am I able to do so?Yes. 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 at the College 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 second year?Students will receive a Basic Traditional Chinese Medicines on the completion of the second year.
