Dear Prospective Students,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I welcome your interest in our combined Bachelor/Masters degree programs that prepare you to be a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese herbology.

NYCTCM  was established in 1996 by Dr. Chi Chow. Dr. Chow’s vision was to have a school where students study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) much as it is taught in China and to relate this approach to western medical practice.

I have been associated with the college as Academic Dean, and later as President, since its establishment. My approach to educating students is to provide a thorough foundation in Oriental Medicine theory through a practice-based learning program taught in a genuine TCM style.

I view the expertise of our faculty and their authentic approach to teaching TCM as the strengths of our school. We have an outstanding TCM faculty averaging more than 25 years of experience in the integrative practice of acupuncture and Chinese herbology in China, with many having taught or done research there. In small classes these master practitioners mentor students in the philosophy and practice of Oriental Medicine. They enjoy the challenge of teaching students the philosophical context of time-honored TCM classics as they role-model TCM practice in a contemporary medical setting. They are committed to working diligently to help you become a qualified, caring TCM practitioner. I continue to be pleased when I hear from so many of our more than five hundred graduates affirming the strength of their understanding of TCM as a result of their studies at the college.

Compared with a 5,000-year history as an integral part of medical practice in China, acupuncture has been recognized and accepted in America for over 40 years. But acupuncture and Chinese herbology have already been confirmed for their efficacy and safety, as well as for offering a cost-effective alternative within the American health care system, resulting in more and more Americans accessing this approach to promoting their health and wellness.

My vision for the college is to put NYCTCM in the forefront of the evolution of American acupuncture and Oriental Medicine education with a commitment to excellence. As a strong advocate of student participation in the educational experience, my door is always open to share viewpoints and experiences that enable us to work with you and serve you effectively. With an exceptional Traditional Chinese Medicine program that adapts to most schedules, I believe you will find NYCTCM the ideal place for you to access this profession as your new career. I look forward to welcoming you to the school.

With Best Regards,
