Asanté Academy offers a range of clinical training courses. Our Clinical Training and Apprenticeship scheme gives you practical training and one-to-one mentoring in the science and art of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Advanced Clinical Training – Clinical Apprenticeship
Hands on practical one-to-one training in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tuina Massage.
Asanté Academy has devised a training scheme which allows participants to undergo one-to-one clinical training. This is done under the tutelage of one our highly experienced doctors. The majority of the training takes place in a clinical setting under the guidance of the doctor/mentor. Participants are usually required to undertake a theoretical background study in their own time, although some lectures can be arranged.
This is one of our most popular training schemes. The training contents are individually tailored according to needs. Students will be following our experienced supervisor/teacher, mostly one to one, to learn Chinese medicine in a real clinical practice. Additionally, sometimes they may be given opportunities to hands on practice such as needling acupuncture. Time for training is flexible and you can choose the days you wish to attend.
Who is the training aimed at?
The clinical training scheme is open to all levels of experience and qualification. Whether you are a qualified TCM practitioner and would like to undergo advanced clinical training, perhaps in specific areas such as acupuncture, tuina or herbal medicine, or if you are a TCM graduate who has not practised for some time and would like some refresher training, or maybe you are a Healthcare professional who would like to have some basic training in TCM, then this scheme would be very suitable. The scheme can also cater for complete beginners in Traditional Chinese Medicine with additional theory classes.
Our clinical training days are fully supervised by a member(s) of Asante’s teaching and or practice staff. This addtional training is available for current Asante students and Asante graduates, as well as those who gained their qualifications at other institutions.
What does the training involve?
Most of the clinical training involves the trainee observing clinical sessions with their appointed mentor, followed up with discussion and explanation of each patient case. There is however, also time spent with your mentor discussing more general theory and practice. If the trainee is sufficiently advanced and provided that they have necessary insurance cover, then some needling and supervised treatment of patients is also undertaken.
