Primary Course Description
The McMaster University Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program is a practical training program that consists of five, three-day weekend units (126 contact hours) plus a concurrent self-directed home study portion (174 hours). Spring and Fall sessions have been offered every year since the fall of 1998.
The program is skills-based and clinically oriented, with over 80 hours devoted to practical workshops such as surface anatomy palpation, insertion needling techniques, anatomy laboratory, condition specific blueprint treatment design and real live patient treatments. This practical hands-on approach helps participants consistently achieve the program’s objectives.
