RMIT Chinese medicine students use acupuncture, herbal medicine, manual and dietary therapy to treat musculoskeletal, respiratory, anxiety and skin conditions and digestive complaints.
As part of their clinical training, students in their final two years of study offer Chinese medicine services to the public. This takes place at our state-of-the-art Health Science Clinic at University Hill in Bundoora.
Chinese medicine practitioners supervise all students who have also studied biomedical and clinical science in parallel with Chinese medicine. Student practitioners under the supervision of registered Chinese Medicine practitioners undertake patient safety assessment before recommending treatments and consider referral to other healthcare practitioners where appropriate.
