Asantés 20th Anniversary – The Evolution of Asanté
As 2019 draws to a close and we prepare to see in the new year, the team at Asanté are looking to 2020 as a year to celebrate. The coming year will see Asanté’s 20th Anniversary!!
In 1999, Professor Song Xuan Ke conceived the idea of creating a Traditional Chinese medicine clinic with the ability to provide teaching experience for new students. Thus, the Asanté Academy of Chinese Medicine was brought into being.
The year 2000 saw the inauguration and opening of Asanté Academy in Archway, North London. The opening of Asanté also saw the beginning of a hugely successful partnership with Middlesex University.
This partnership paved the way to providing the first full-time BSc Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This was not just in U.K. however, but also in Europe. The 5-year degree was validated by Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. The course was hugely successful, providing the highest standard of teaching combined with outstanding clinical experience. One of the highlights being the opportunity to undertake a 6 month clinical placement in Beijing!
Asanté’s journey within edutcation has also seen many exchanges with other highly respected Chinese Medicine institutions around the world and in China. These include our work with Hubei University of TCM, Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and Shanghai University of TCM
