Masters of Traditional Oriental Medicine (MTOM)

Emperor's College of Traditional Oriental Medicine
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 USA Santa Monica

Emperor’s College master’s program is the most comprehensive acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program in the nation, consisting of 2,240 classroom hours and 970 hours of clinic training. [+]

Master's of Traditional Oriental Medicine Ranked #1 in California and #2 nationally, the Emperor’s College master’s program is the most comprehensive acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program in the nation, consisting of 2,240 classroom hours and 970 hours of clinic training. As a result, we have one of the highest pass rates on the national and California board exams. Year-in and year-out, we rate among the top schools and our students are widely recognized to be the most prepared. There is no other oriental medicine school in the country that makes available more opportunities for their students to learn and master their skills than Emperor’s College. Not only will you be working with an internationally trained faculty that is generally recognized to be the finest in the U.S. and among the top 5 in the world, you will have ample opportunity to get hands-on training outside the classroom and clinic through amazing externships, supervised volunteer actions, and even traveling abroad with faculty members bringing acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to underserved communities. At Emperor’s, you will get an unparalleled education in Oriental Medicine as well as robust western medical instruction, but unlike most acupuncture schools, Emperor’s College students are offered a broad range of elective classes to select from. Throughout the curriculum, students at Emperor’s College are encouraged to take electives in nutrition, advanced herbal medicine, nutrition, Korean acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, five element theory, classical Chinese medicine, acupressure, shiatsu, meditation, advanced tai chi, and advanced qi gong. When you sit for your board exams and then beyond when you begin working in an established clinical practice or even creating your own private practice, you will be ready and prepared! The Four Year Master’s Degree The Master of Traditional Oriental Medicine (MTOM) degree, just like a Western medicine medical degree, is a 4 year program comprised of both didactic and clinical education. Also like a 4 year Western medicine degree, you’ll be thoroughly prepared to take and pass your board exams. Year 1 – 2 The curriculum opens with the ABC’s of acupuncture, Oriental medicine and bio medicine. You will be introduced to theories and philosophies such as qi, yin and yang, constitutional make ups, zang fu (internal medicine), acupuncture points and meridians, tongue and pulse diagnosis and Chinese herbal medicine, including lab time in the herbal dispensary. You will also start an extensive study of Western medicine, beginning with biology, chemistry, biochemistry, medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, western nutrition and pathophysiology. To prepare you for your clinical training, you will begin a 9 month study of acupuncture points and techniques as well as 150 hours of immersion into the clinical setting in observation theater and rounds. We encourage you to start a daily tai chi and/or qi gong practice at the onset of your studies so you can begin to experience the value of these therapies early on. As such many students enroll in at least one of the two required tai chi and qi gong classes within their first two years. Emperor’s offers three of the four internationally-recognized styles of tai chi for students to choose from: Yang, Chen and Sun. To conclude the first half of the program, students sit for a comprehensive Pre-Clinical exam which tests their comprehension of the first two years of coursework and successful completion gains them access to their clinical training. Year 3 – 4 In the second half of the program, students focus on integrating and synthesizing the information they learned in their first two years. Classes take a more clinical approach and students spend approximately 5-15 hours a week applying their clinical skills while treating patients under the supervision of an instructor in Emperor’s Community Acupuncture Clinic and various externship sites. Student interns are able to choose which clinical faculty they work with based on the faculty member’s medical specialty. Emperor’s boasts a wide array of highly trained specialists, many of whom are also MDs, in areas such as auricular acupuncture, blood disorders, cardiology, dermatology, gerontology, internal medicine, mental health, orthopedics, pediatrics and woman’s health, to name a few. Because of the high patient volume at Emperor’s College Acupuncture Clinic, all interns treat their own patients affording real-life experience of what it is like to be a private practitioner. At externship sites such as Roy & Patricia Disney Cancer Center, the Venice Family Clinic’s Simms/Mann Health and Wellness Center, Being Alive, and the Saban Community Clinic, where integrative medicine is the focus, interns work alongside MDs, nurses and chiropractic interns in patient treatment and round-table presentations. Students also begin preparing for their board exams and entering the professional world with review seminars, practice management and marketing classes. International Students Emperor’s College is very fortunate to have a culturally diverse student body in both its masters and doctoral degree programs of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. The myriad of backgrounds brings life to campus and rewards each student with a strong community of like-minded individuals from which to draw. Students from Canada, China, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, England, Germany, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Ecuador, Iran, India and elsewhere call Emperor’s College home, and we hope you will soon, too. All courses in the masters and doctoral programs are taught in English. Applicants from a non-English speaking country may be required to demonstrate competency in the English skills needed for success by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam. Emperor’s College TOEFL code is 8409. Emperor’s College is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students who meet our general admissions requirements and to comply with all federal guidelines under the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. Apply as an International Student In addition to the standard admissions and application process, International students need to submit the following: Official academic transcripts translated into English A comprehensive course-by-course evaluation by an academic credential evaluation service that is a member of NACES Demonstration of English proficiency with a combined score of 79 or above on the TOEFL iBT, including a minimum speaking exam score of 26 and minimum listening exam score of 22.
