Credit Transfer for Health Professionals

CITCM encourages doctors, nurses, or any other health professionals to apply to the Double Major Diploma Program. Health practitioners who have western medicine training background may shorten the duration of the Acupuncture/Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine program at CITCM through credit transfer. Successful credit transfer applicants will receive tuition deduction (see transfer credit requirement and policy).
For example, a medical physician can be awarded credits that are equivalent to one full year of training based on their past education and practice.  A registered nurse, physiotherapists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopathic doctors, osteopathic manual practitioners, and other health practitioners may be able to be granted up to two or more semesters of credit transfer. This may allow a student to graduate earlier from the program.
CITCM reviews each applicant’s credentials individually.  Please contact CITCM Registrar for further details regarding this opportunity.
