Considering a career that promotes well-being and empowers others? Acupuncture might be the perfect fit! This ancient practice, rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, focuses on balancing the body's energy flow to alleviate pain, improve overall health, and enhance well-being. 


What to Expect from a Career in Acupuncture 


A career in Acupuncture offers the satisfaction of helping others and the potential for a fulfilling work-life balance. Many acupuncturists enjoy flexible schedules and the opportunity to create a practice environment that reflects their values.

Becoming a Licensed Acupuncturist in BC

  • University Degree Holders: If you possess a university degree (in any field!), you can take the CTCMA exam directly in BC. 

  • Vancouver Career College Diploma Graduates: Vancouver Career College graduates can write the exam in Alberta or Ontario and then transfer their license to practice in BC upon passing.

Students also get to observe the operations of a TCM clinic through their supervised Clinical Placements. They gain hands-on experience in clinical skills such as interviewing patients, diagnosis, treatment, and formulating herbal prescriptions. 


Vancouver Career College maintains impressive pass rates for the CTCMA exam, with a 100% success rate for graduates of the English program and a 70-80% pass rate for the Mandarin program.
