Transfer Credit for Courses That Satisfy MSTCM Requirements

 

Placement Examinations

ACTCM at CIIS administers placement examinations to entering students who have received credits from an accredited institution or the foreign equivalent to confirm that a student has attained the level of knowledge or skills that ACTCM at CIIS requires. There is no charge for a placement examination. Students who do not receive a passing grade on a placement examination will be required to audit the corresponding coursework at ACTCM.

 

Residency Requirement

Regardless of the amount of coursework completed previously at other institutions or the amount of transfer credit awarded by ACTCM at CIIS, all transfer students are required to complete at least 50% of their didactic acupuncture and Chinese medicine training and all of their clinical training (with the exception of observation courses) in residence at ACTCM. Students must also be enrolled in clinical internship for a minimum of 12 months.
