Your career in Chinese medicine
On graduation you will be trained to practise Chinese medicine with internationally-accepted accreditation.
How you will learn in this program
You will undertake clinical observation at the RMIT Health Sciences Clinic from first year and a final-semester clinical internship in China through the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine.
RMIT was an easy choice to make; it is dedicated to research in my chosen field and has strong relationships with traditional universities in China. Additionally, RMIT combines Western medical practices with traditional Chinese medicine to give students the best chance of success in the Australian healthcare industry. Other than a fantastic faculty and staff, the major highlight for me was the clinical placement in Nanjing, China, for which I received an international study scholarship, during my final year.

Learn here, succeed anywhere
RMIT has led the development of Chinese medicine teaching in Australia. The degree was the first of its kind in Australia and is accredited through the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia. While significant international ties with the Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine sees students undertake clinical practice with a placement in the Jiangsu Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine. Here students hone their skills by seeing approximately 30 patients a day during a 13-week placement.
