American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine ACM 6552 2.00
During these two clinical courses, students progress from working in trainee to assuming individual responsibility for patients. The student intern greets the patient, explains his or her role, takes a history, and proposes to the clinical supervisor a prescription of acupuncture points, an herbal remedy and/or other adjunct therapies such as cupping, moxabustion or tuina. The student is also responsible for discussing the treatment plan with the patient, administering the complete treatment, and filling the herbal formula. Before the student initiates the treatment, the clinical supervisor examines the patient, and reviews the diagnosis and treatment plan; he or she also observes the insertion of the acupuncture needles and other procedures as needed to ensure proper treatment.
