Five Branches is the first TCM University to offer a fully asynchronous, online “Bridge” Doctoral Completion Program, allowing you to earn a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM) or Doctor of Acupuncture (DAc) degree from the convenience of your office or home.
In the DTCM/DAc Bridge Program, you build a fluency in the language of integrative medicine, learning to effectively articulate your TCM knowledge and skills in a biomedical setting. Gaining expertise in Western medicine diagnosis, will aide you in collaborating with other medical professionals as a Primary Healthcare Provider.
Upon completion of this 315-hour program, you can confidently embrace your full potential as a medical professional and offer the highest standard of integrative patient-centered care.
Nothing sharpens the skills of a licensed acupuncturist like returning to advance your degree. 100% online and asynchronous, we give you an easy way to pick up where you left off.
The Bridge program curriculum builds upon your TCM core-skills and integrates research, Western biomedicine, and professional development into a seamless academic experience.
You will experience a diverse community of fellow practitioners who believe in the power of collaboration, the vital exchange of ideas, and joining together to make an impact on the future of healthcare.
