This is a rare opportunity to undertake high level post-graduate study in Chinese Medicine from a European base with only a minimum number of requisite visits to Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine in China. On successful completion of all aspects of the programme, GUCM will issue graduation certificates and academic Masters Degree certificates recognised by the Ministry of Education in the People's Republic of China and thus recognised by all countries having a Mutual recognition of Degree qualifications agreement with the People's Republic of China. Summary 2 years Part-time - for trained professional practitioners of TCM working and living in Europe Leading to a Master of Chinese Medicine degree awarded by Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine and the Chinese Department of Education Students will be registered with both Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (GUCM) and the Irish College of TCM, the affiliated TCM College of GUCM in Ireland. In the first year students will study the requisite number of compulsory taught modules (approximately 8). Students will go to Guangzhou at the beginning of the first year to enrol on the programme with Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, and to register with the Department of Education in China. They will complete 2 or 3 of the taught modules during this visit to Guangzhou. The remaining modules will mainly be taught at the Irish College of TCM (ICTCM) in Dublin by academic staff from GUCM or during the second year visit to China. Each student will have a specialist thesis supervisor from GUCM Students will decide on the topic of their thesis and conduct a literature review during the first year. The second year will be mainly devoted to textual, clinical or laboratory-based research upon which the thesis/dissertation will be written. Students may conduct their research in Ireland (or other neighbouring European countries if appropriate) at clinical or research establishments approved by GUCM. Alternatively they may go to Guangzhou, if they wish, during the second year and conduct their research there. All Students will defend their thesis in Guangzhou at the end of the second academic year. The course will be taught in English. (On some occasions it may be taught in Chinese with English translation.) All technical TCM terminology is taught in Chinese Pinyin. Taught Courses The exact taught courses which a student will undertake will be dependent on their TCM specialism. However, the Courses will normally be drawn from: Courses in scientific research methodology including Medical Statistics, Medical Computer Applications, and Literature Retrieval and Utilization Courses in the foundations of TCM including: Clinical Foundations of TCM, TCM Emergencies, TCM Oncology (on-trial), Clinical Diagnostics (on-trial), and Basic and Clinical Research on Acupuncture and Moxibustion Courses for both Doctor and Master programme: Internal Classic (Nei Jing), Canon of Difficult Issues (Nan Jing), Study of Febrile Diseases (Wen Bing), Introduction to Medical Cases from Different TCM Schools, and Research Progress of TCM Diagnostics.

The dissertation or thesis will be written in English and students are responsible for translating the abstracts into Chinese and paying the resulting translation fees where applicable. Who can apply Applicants must hold a Bachelor Degree in Chinese Medicine, Western Medicine or other related disciplines. The Lic.TCM issued by ICTCM is regarded by Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine as equivalent to a BSc degree for direct entry to this Masters programme. Applicants with other qualifications in the TCM field will have their qualification-level assessed by GUCM. Only qualifications deemed to be at Bachelor Degree level will be acceptable. As the Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine is specifically designed for those who are already qualified and practising in the field of TCM, the applicant must normally already be trained in their specialist Chinese Medical field. Thus: Those wishing to choose Acupuncture Moxibustion as their specialism will need to be fully trained professionals of Acupuncture TCM with a Degree or Degree-equivalent in the subject.

In addition to gaining subject specific knowledge this programme enhances your research skills to make use of your developing depth of knowledge.

As someone who works in the health or social care sector your aim is to help people to live better for longer. This course will enhance your professional practice and help you to lead and shape the care you deliver, making sure people have the support, care and treatment they need, delivered with the compassion, respect and dignity they deserve. You will be able to choose your course content to cover topics that will enable you to deliver care that ensures people stay healthy, protects them from threats to their health and minimises the risk and impact of their illnesses. Your studies will equip you to lead the shaping of services that meet patients' needs and enable people to retain their independence and dignity. Modules about compassionate care, mental health and wellbeing, children’s welfare and integration of health and social services are all topics that you can choose from. With this course a more inclusive approach to workforce development with the introduction of a common core of skills and knowledge for the health and social care workforce is now in place.

A masters level programme in health and social care thus allows you develop your practice in a variety of service and community settings. Special features The course has a high degree of flexibility allowing you to choose from a broad range of modules. The emphasis on all our modules is on using theory to improve practice, and the quality and effectiveness of the services offered to patients and clients. We have an open, friendly style, lots of service experience, and give personalised support. Most people who work with us come from organisations in health, social care and the voluntary sector. They combine study and demanding jobs; we are very aware of the pressures this brings and try to adapt our programmes to accommodate this. Students on this course have very varied leadership and managerial responsibilities. They include commissioners and providers, clinicians and non-clinicians, strategic and operational managers. Most come via word-of-mouth from previous students and are looking for a supportive academic environment that helps them do their job. The Health and Community Studies Academic Group recognises that students wishing to undertake postgraduate study have varied amounts of academic experience and confidence. The department therefore offers free study skills sessions that have proved popular and productive with our past students. What you will learn Studying on this course will extend your skills in your field of professional practice.

Health and Wellbeing specialisms - MPhil / PhD The Centre for Research for Health and Wellbeing welcomes expressions of interest in postgraduate research degrees in areas of study related to health and wellbeing. The centre draws together expertise from across the University within an inter-disciplinary framework, and provides a vibrant and fertile environment for postgraduate research studies. We undertake research, evaluation and needs assessment into service user involvement, participation and innovation, 'hard to reach groups' and service improvement, drawing from areas such as sociology, social policy, leisure studies, nursing, physiotherapy, public health and many more. We offer a number of research routes for those wishing to increase their research experience and develop their academic and professional profile. These include ‘traditional’ postgraduate programmes such as MPhil and PhD, as well as new routes to PhDs such as our PhD by Practice and PhD by Published Work (prospective and retrospective). We are also in the process of developing a Professional Doctorate in Health Research. Subject overview The Centre for Research in Health and Wellbeing undertakes high quality research that relates to professional agendas and social issues connected to the health and wellbeing of groups and individuals. Our research is based upon collaborative partnerships and community involvement and is truly interdisciplinary, encompassing areas such as public health, nursing, physiotherapy, leisure studies, social policy and sociology to name a few. The centre draws on expertise from a variety of academic perspectives and brings these to bear on current issues relating to health and wellbeing. All of our research is underpinned by partnerships and collaborations in health, and across the public and voluntary sectors. We examine the links and the potential for sharing of best practice between these areas and have expertise in service improvement, evaluation, needs assessment, service user involvement, participation and innovation. The centre’s research into health and wellbeing disciplines has been judged to be among the best in the world according to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. 75% of the research activity in social policy at the University of Bolton (which includes health, physical activity and social history) was judged to be of international standard or better – with a proportion of research activity in this field judged to be world-leading, in terms of quality, significance and rigour. Research topics Here's a sample of our current and recent research projects and collaborations. Experience-based design collaboration with Bolton PCT’s Orthopaedic Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (CATS): in this project we are working with Bolton’s Orthopaedic CATS service to develop and pilot a participatory, arts-based methodology which will enable the service to capture patients’ experiences. Barrow Community Gym: we worked with service users, service providers and other stakeholders to develop an evaluation tool for a community-based gym for people with mental health problems User involvement in service delivery and design, The RLC Surgery, Radcliffe: we have undertaken pilot work to scope a methodology for involving patients in the development of services which the surgery provides. Working with users, GPs, nurses and other practice staff, we have designed a research protocol which has been submitted as a research proposal to the Research for Patient Benefit funding scheme. Greater Manchester Public Health Practice Unit – research engagement with hard-to-reach groups for health improvement: we have been involved in discussions and pilot work around proposed programmes of research which link experiential knowledge with interventions that have an impact on reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes in vulnerable groups.
