Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the 2020 China Acupuncture Class (for already registered non-mainland China students) is relocated to Seoul, South Korea.
Students interested in taking the acupuncture course in Asia, can view other options in South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, or Taiwan.
The Acupuncture in China course is equivalent to the first two sessions of the basic acupuncture course. Students may choose between two tracks: Canine and Equine. The Canine track will focus on osteoarthritis and IVDD. The Equine track will focus on lameness, neurological and reproductive disorders.
This course is equivalent to Session 1 and 2 of the basic acupuncture course offered by the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine in the USA. Upon completion of this course, students are eligible to continue with Sessions 3-5 at any of our other CVA courses around the world. Upon completion of all 5 sessions and all other requirements, students will obtain their Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) certification.
To enroll in this course you must be either a license veterinarian or you must have completed at least one year of school at an accredited college of veterinary medicine (CVM) by the start date of the course.
Students of the Acupuncture CE course are eligible for the Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist certification endorsed by the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. The CVA certification requirements are as follows:
Please note that the Chi Institute cannot issue any certification to DVM students until their DVM has been obtained.
