New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches acupuncture and herbal medicine much as they are taught in China, while helping students relate this approach to the contemporary Western healthcare system.
The excellent faculty, most of whom were trained in China and have extensive teaching and clinical experience in both China and the U.S., combined with small classes and master-apprentice type teaching relationships in the school’s teaching clinics, means that this ancient knowledge is carefully transmitted to the students who will make up the next generation of master practitioners.
