Foreign Internship — (Course Number 596, Optional)
The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine has been conducting foreign internship trips to China for over twenty years. During these trips, students have gained clinical experience at TCM hospitals all over China, including Beijing, Chengdu, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou. In 1996, the Midwest College was granted formal affiliation with the Guangzhou Medical University, whose eight hospitals in Guangdong province treat over three million patients per year and perform ten thousand outpatient treatments per day.
The Midwest College’s affiliation with the Guangzhou University has led to a new cooperative relationship between our two schools to develop curriculum and support international exchange in the field of medicine. Our collaboration has allowed us to bring the most recent advances in TCM medical therapy to our educational programs.
Only Midwest College foreign internships are accepted for approved credit. Private or unaccredited foreign study programs are not accepted for credit. Students must have their Midwest College tuition paid up to date before foreign internship credit is accepted. The China internship trip may not cause attendance requirement conflicts with the didactic portion of their education. A maximum of 108 hours of acupuncture clinic may be completed through the Midwest College’s foreign study trip.
