NZSATCM offers a dynamic curriculum combining in-depth classroom instruction with innovative collaborative learning activities and extensive hands-on clinical experience.

Our graduates have the theoretical knowledge, clinical skills and professional maturity to practice effectively as primary care, independent Acupuncture and related Oriental Medicine.

The School’s range of certificate, diploma and degree programmes connect you to the workplace by 
ensuring the curriculum is current and relevant, and the contents are of the right mix of theory and practical skills. Our academic staircase enables you to attain multiple qualifications by gaining credits in lower-level studies towards a higher-level qualification.

The level of study is demanding and will require your time and best efforts to achieve the professional standard.

Practice Management

A successful acupuncture practice requires an understanding of the business, ethics and legal issues of the acupuncture profession. In the practice management curriculum you will create a comprehensive business plan that will serve as an on-going resource and road map in creating and marketing a successful practice. You will also learn about practical issues such as scope of practice, medical record keeping, insurance and billing practices.

Graduates of our qualifications trend toward establishment of private practices of their own, join multidisciplinary practices or take advantage of flexible working hour opportunities as locums.
