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.

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. Those wishing to chosoe Medical Qigong as their specialism will need to have a relevant scientific, medical or TCM-related degree with skills in Medical Qigong equivalent to, or similar to the Post-graduate Certificate in MQG.
